Get a good sense of President Johnson's character, intellect, and impact on the country at LBJ Presidential Library. The library houses millions of pages of historical documents. As you enter the lobby, the first thing you see is the President's limousine. Start from the top floor by walking through a replica of the Oval Office arranged as it was during Johnson's presidency. See a portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt, LBJ's three television sets, and his many books. Look for the desk on which the president signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965. You can also see significant artifacts from the days surrounding the assassination of JFK. Look for a telephone in a corner to listen to conversations concerning this historic event.

  • TheLBJ Library is worth the visit. Very well organized and had other historical exhibits as well to view. Be sure to listen to many of the conversations that are available. Good movie presentaions. 
  • Great piece of history Glad we visited. Perfect if you have 2-3 hour window of Free time Don't forget to visit 10th floor For mock up of White house 
  • One of the best Presidential libraries I have visited. Very extensive. Not to be missed. The history of our times is so very well detailed . 
  • Supervisor of 20+ years was rude to me. I'm 25 but look younger. He kept interupting me and I could not enjoy rest of the exhibit after. I confronted him before I left a told him the proper way was to let someone finish talking and then in a respectful way tell them what they did wrong and ask them to correct that behavior. I told him he was discriminating against my age since I saw older people doing the same thing I was doing. He told me I wasn't and I saw only what I wanted and I called him out. He didn't like it and after I said my last piece I bid him a good day and left. If you look younger and unattended by anyone who looks older be aware he might follow you like a sales person looking for a thief.
  • From 6 to 60 we all enjoyed, reminisced, & learned lots of new info. Great attention holding multi-media presentations. Kids loved the phones.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
