This museum is expertly crafted to help you understand the thinking of LBJ. On the third floor LBJ's presidency exhibit takes you through all aspects of his decision making and the laws he passed. The interactive displays about the Vietnam war put you in the Oval Office, making the decisions LBJ made. The building is an example of great architecture, and if you make it to the tenth floor you will be rewarded with a great view. The typography is also great, and every aspect of the museum is well thought out and designed. The one thing wrong with the museum is that it doesn't present all the negative aspects of the Johnson presidency.

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.

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.

Spectacular library to one of the most complicated and compelling figures to ever occupy the Oval Office.

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.

I was surprised how interesting this was. Of course it's slanted to show President Johnson in a positive light. But I'll bet you learn a lot here.

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.
