Before Presidential Libraries became just window dressing, they built this one. Tells it LIKE IT WAS. LBJ was complicated, and so was his legacy. This is one of my favorite presidential libraries - well, well worth the visit. Vs. the Clinton Library which is just window dressing. Hey Bill did you ever meet Monica? LBJ they tell is all. Good, bad, ugly.

What a crock. This place is a mockery of truth and justice. LBJ was a psychopathic criminal who murdered JFK to stay out of prison. The library and web site have no reference to LBJ's attack on the American sailors of the USS Liberty, no mention of Bobby Baker--in fact no mention of anything relating to the truth about this lunatic thug. LBJ is America's Hitler. No matter how hard they try--his protectors can not keep the truth from exposure for ever.

I am not what you would call a history buff but me, my father and my grandfather went and we had a great time. The staff was very informational. My grandfather really enjoyed the Vietnam War Era. This place should be added to your things to do in Austin list!

An interesting but somewhat small museum. It is obviously focused on LBJ the man and so more context about the issues would be helpful. The museum highlights two major themes: the Great Society legislation; and the sinkhole of the war in Vietnam.

This was my first visit to a presidential library. During my two hours, I enjoyed the exhibits especially the Great Hall with official portraits of all the President and First Ladies, clips of recorded conversations with MLK and Jackie O, and gifts presented to LBJ from world leaders. The replica of the Oval Office from the Johnson administration with an audio description was also interesting.

Wonderful wonderful museum. Very glad to have visited and learned more about this historically significant Texan. Leave yourself plenty of time to absorb it all.

I always leave the LBJ Library with great inspiration and a respect for American history; being able to read and view different historical pieces of LBJ's life is amazing. The library has 3 big floors, each floor with various themes of LBJ's life. I went this past July 4th and they had a Sixties exhibit showcasing 60 influential people from the 1960's. The middle floor on the top of the stairs is filled with archives. The top floor has a replica of the Oval Office along with several of Lady Bird's artifacts. I definitely recommend everyone to visit this presidential library. Don't be surprised if you want to spend the entire day there. General Adult tickets are $8. College students pay $3 with student id. There are other reduced admission fares on their website. Parking is free in Lot 38 on Red River St.
