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

This was one of my must-dos while in Texas. Great place to stop and see so many great artifacts from the mid-20th century. Also a great history lesson for that time era. Especially interesting was it not sugar-coating the horror of the vietnam war.

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

Short but comprehensive visit. Good look at history of the time. Extremely helpful staff. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in town.

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.
