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.

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.

This is one of the best presidential libraries I've been to. It is tastefully done, highlighting LBJ's (many) accomplishments, but also keeping in mind where he could have done better. They've got some interesting recordings that really illustrate how torn he was over Vietnam.

This is the best presidential library I have been to, great place to visit and to look at archival information. The Cafe is good and the people are friendly. Make sure to go at a time when its not too hot. The 1960's modernist architecture can be beautiful or brutal, depending on how you look at it.

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.

The LBJ Library and Museum was recently renovated, so even if you have been before, you give it another visit. The visitor is first ushered into a small theater with a very well produced, brief retrospective. It's worth going just to see that reminder of the time, the man, and the Presidency. After, tour the interactive displays, iconic images, and historical items, and be impressed by the glass wall in front of presidential papers available for scholarly research. There's a gift shop at the end, of course, and then you have the UT campus to explore when you exit.

A real blast from the past! I grew up in the 60s. This museum covers not just the political times but the culture of the 50s and 60s. Prepare to be surrounded by the turbulent times of the mid 1900s. Beautiful and awful all at the same time.

Wow what a place. I love books and collecting miscaLANIOUS INFORMATION. I have not yet found myself board in this library looking for other thing. The check out is clear, and fast. The books are current. And the refrence is large. If you use anything for a library this would be the one in Austin. And with the Childrens events they have this is a perfect place to gather.
