A wonderful summary of where our modern word developed. LBJ was at the center of it all. Exhibits present a trip down memory lane.

So glad we spent a few hours here one morning. Could have spent a good half day easy. Really informative museum, with plenty of placards with information, but also numerous videos and audio stations to keep your attention (the recorded LBJ phone calls were great)....More

Quite unexpected to find the LBJ presidential library does not have any restaurant or a basic snack facility. There is not even somewhere to sit down to have a drink!!!

We learned a lot about President Johnson that we didn’t know. Very informative about his social programs, the Vietnam Nam war and was well laid out. This is definitely worth seeing if you are interested in history.

We expected to be there for two hours, stayed 4! And that doesn't include the Gift Shop. What took the longest was maybe the most satisfying-- the tapes of phone conversations between LBJ and many fascinating people.

We had guess passes because my brother works there. I believe is about $5-8. I don't believe is any more than that.
