As far as Presidential museums go this is pretty incredible museum. Now you have to know this describes a. Which I lived through, so that does flavor things quite a bit. Now I must say that the layout is wonderful, I'm sure the archives are incredible. As you come into the lobby on this trip anyway, there was a special presentation about the Beatles, after all they were part of the error of mr. Johnson's presidency. As we look through the legislation the this man carefully pushed through Congress, one can see that he was very influential in the things that he did. Noting that the civil rights act, Fair Housing Act, and many other social programs like Medicare and feeding and food stamps for the poor,, this man was definitely for the people all people. How to have a Congress that could do those things today would be so amazing, dream dream. Back to the museum there is a oval office on the 10th floor that displays what it was like in the presidents office there is an extensive display about the things ladybird did, she too was amazing. There are phones throughout the museum that enable you to hear conversation between the president and others, very enlightening. Learning more about our history sure gives us insight about the past, a reflection on today, and a window to the future. God bless america, let's make it all a little better.

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.

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.

Really enjoyable. Had no idea of LBJ's range of contribution. Leave plenty of time, it can take quite a while to get through the details laid out. 100% recommend it.

Love this landmark. Rotating exhibits are great and they continuously improve the permanent exhibits too.

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!
