Foursquare Tips

  • 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.

  • 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*
  • Ask to see Ladybird's secret files. Don't take 'No' for an answer.
  • 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
