We were so impressed with the LBJ library and the impact he and Lady Bird had on our country under the most challenging times. The library is done extremely well and covers so much of our history. One doesn’t want to miss this beautiful library and the contributions to our nation.

First off, I LOVE all things LBJ when they are true to his character. The abundant supply of recorded phone calls and the president are so extraordinary and give wonderful insight into his larger than life persona. The LBJ Library, like the man himself, is one of a kind.

This is a very well done presidential library. Interesting video clips without being overly techy. Timelines and video really give a sense of the time. Impressive building on a beautiful campus.

I learned quite a bit walking through this presidential library. This was my first president. The hours and hours of recordings and the phones all over the museum where you were able to hear his voice were awesome. Must see for Austin visitors.

A must visit if you have the time in Austin. Wonderful exhibits, including an Oval Office replica. A great 50’s and 60’s history lesson.
