All reviews vietnam war civil rights president johnson great society replica of the oval office jackie kennedy white house his life american history lady bird interactive exhibits university of texas campus special exhibit three floors great exhibits on display well worth the visit
We enjoyed this visit a lot more than we expected. The organization was well thought out. The historical time line really put events in perspective. While we lived thru LBJ's presidency, we found we had forgotten many things.
They did a great job of emphasizing...More
Honestly, I didn’t know much about this president, but did after this well spent time. It was a well done tribute to him and his wife, Lady Bird, and what they contributed to society. No idea he’d passed so many civil rights, public works, literacy...More
LBJ was a very interesting person and his library goes a long way in telling of his life experiences and just why he did the many things that he did while he was President. A very political person who could use politics to gain his...More
I have never visited a presidential library and didn't know what to expect. I was so glad I visited this one. The building sits on the University of Texas campus. The displays were well done, many were interactive, and really held your interest. I learned...More

Great museum to learn about history and the real LBJ. There is a real serious side to the museum and a very comical side to LBJ very few knew about. He did a lot of great things for our country and he won the Silver...More
We walked to the library from downtown Austin via the garden of the Capitol Building and past the Longhorns’ stadium.
It cost $10 to get in and we thought it was good value for money.
We did not know very much about LBJ and Lady...More
We expected to be there for two hours, stayed 4! And that doesn't include the Gift Shop. What took the longest was maybe the most satisfying-- the tapes of phone conversations between LBJ and many fascinating people.
