LBJ Library

The LBJ Library is a treasure in the city of Austin. Today is Presidents Day and it makes me so proud to think of Lyndon B Johnson and Lady Bird Johnson (who came to our wedding years ago!).  Have you ever had a chance to visit this iconic spot in our city?

Their website has a lot of information in regards to tickets, their exhibits and more, but here is a snapshot:

EXHIBITS:

The LBJ museum has permanent and temporary exhibits including the following:

  • Listen to dozens of LBJ’s historic White House telephone conversations
  • Step into a replica of the Oval Office
  • Experience the president’s decision-making process in interactive displays about the Six-Day War and Vietnam War
  • Discover how legislation signed by LBJ affects you today
  • Peek into Lady Bird Johnson’s office and learn about her environmental efforts and White House Years

ARCHIVES:

The museum stores more than 45 million pages of an extensive audiovisual collection, including photos and hours of recordings, and 55,000+ artifacts donated by the Johnson family, their friends, and other American people.

Follow me on social media for more tips about the city, and feel free to ask me any questions.
