Bush presidential library is putting on an exhibit at a museum on the campus of SMU to give the public a preview of some of the kinds of things that will be on display once the library opens. It'll be the first chance the public will have to look at many of these items and see a model of what the center will look like when it's completed in 2013. (AP Photo/LM Otero)

A new exhibit will give the public its first glimpse of some of the artifacts in the archives of former President George W. Bush.

Artifacts on display in Dallas will include the bullhorn Bush used when he visited ground zero days after Sept. 11 and the pistol taken from Saddam Hussein when he was captured.

The free exhibit, "Breaking New Ground: Presenting the George W. Bush Presidential Center," opens Saturday and runs through Feb. 6 at the Meadows Museum on the campus of Southern Methodist University, where the center will be built.

Ground will be broken next month on the center, which will include the presidential library and the George W. Bush Institute. The center is expected to be open by early 2013.
