  • Excellent presentation of LBJ and his accomplishments while in office. Great layout and very easy to follow the timeline of his life. Would highly recommend to anyone who is interested in our nation's history.
  • Interesting place. I love all the history. There is a fee to get in but there is a lot to see and learn. Its also very beautiful and serene around the grounds.
  • From 6 to 60 we all enjoyed, reminisced, & learned lots of new info. Great attention holding multi-media presentations. Kids loved the phones.
  • I was born on Nov. 22, so grew up with an interest in Kennedy's assassination. Still questioning his involvement, but learned a whole lot about him that I never had a clue about. He signed some very important bills into law. Gained an appreciation for him through this museum.
  • For some reason, one of the dudes in charge looked at me funny and kept following me around. Yes I had an backpack with me, but I did have any intentions of stealing. I noticed that he kept following me around, and I was just trying to enjoy the view. That was unprofessional if you ask me. This place is beautiful, but my experience was not. 2 stars mang!
