Foursquare Tips

  • Soak in the Great Hall which features a four-story, glass encased view of the archives collection.
  • This library was dedicated on May 22nd 1971. Over 45 million pages of documents are located in this museum, some of which were written by LBJ himself.
  • The presidential library for Lyndon B. Johnson includes the presidential archives with millions of documents, and an extensive museum open to the public.
  • Ask to see Ladybird's secret files. Don't take 'No' for an answer.
  • The film was good. Don't miss the animatronic Lyndon. Slightly freaky, but good jokes.
  • We found this museum to be very informative. Worth the visit.
  • Changed politics for at least the next 100 years. WoW !
  • The exhibit on photograpy and the Presidency is pretty boss
  • Underwhelming. Could have been so much more.
  • A beautiful collection of memories from LBJ and Lady Bird Johnson. Don't forget to check out Lady Bird's incredible downtown Austin view from her perch.
  • Amazing for those who love to learn about the history in which built us... or at least attempted to do it right *bias*
  • Even if you're not a fan of Lyndon B. Johnson, taking the guided LBJ tour will make a history lover out of you, complete with a scale model of the Oval Office.
  • Don't miss the creepy animatronic LBJ teling jokes on the 4th (2nd) floor.
  • Don't try to even pretend you're going to shake animatronic LBJ's hand. The security guard will regulate on you like they're Secret Service!
  • Print out a family tour at the Information Desk and use it to guide you through the exhibits. Prompts invite younger children to look for objects and answer questions. Powered by ParentsConnect.com
  • easily spend half a day here. very interesting and free and free parking! watch the orientation film for sure
  • Must do stop for Austinites and highly recommend for tourists. Al about LBJ but usually some cool temporary exhibit. Don't be afraid to learn something!
  • Loved the museum! The LBJ phone recordings are a great addition and really give insight into the man he was. Definitely a must do if you want to learn more about him and his presidency!
  • This museum used to be free but now charges a small fee. $8 for adults and $5 for senior citizens. It was worth the price of the tickets to learn so much about our history.
  • Plan to spend several hours, be sure to listen to the phone calls he made. Well worth spending several hours of your time.
