“Great Presidential Library”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

They have the the most influential 60 people of the 60's on display. If you experienced that era, you will really enjoy this part of the museum. I am not a liberal, but liked seeing this great depiction of that time, plus all the political points of that time.

“Surprising”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

I never knew LBJ was such an interesting, dynamic personality. Go to the museum, it will change your perspective on the history of the USA - post Camelot.

“Wish I had more time”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Great museum, small enough, but still needed more time. Great exhibition on the 60's. Learned a great deal about LBJ that I never knew and gained great respect for the former leader of our nation.

“Wow!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Very impressed-- first time since I've been back since the reno. Great job-- very well laid out experience. Too much to see in one visit.
Funny though how the ticket clerk referred to our tickets as our "souveniers." Weird.
