The traditional tenth anniversary gift is tin or aluminum. For the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, it got a makeover.
An $8.3 million renovation began in April, and included new exhibits like a walk-in Oval Office replica and an expanded Gulf War display.
Also among the biggest changes was the addition on dozens of interactive displays which brought the museum the latest technologies with which to present the president's career.
November saw the grand reopening of the permanent exhibit as part of the tenth anniversary celebration. President Bush once again jumped out of a plane with the Army Golden Knights in a surprise entrance to the event.
