I'm glad we had a moment to visit this LBJ Presidential Library. It is very well designed, historical, impressive displays, real recordings of LBJ's phone conversations. Maybe just an hour is all you need; two hours if you have the time.

The introduction video show says it all. LBJ did more for Civil Rights and diversity than many of our modern Presidents. His bills passed, promoted and enacted changed our nation. This Library is a must see. Reinforcing the good he did.

The LBJ Presidential Library is well worth a visit. It was interesting for example to see all of the pens he used for signing legislation (a very odd US custom).

We spent a long time at the Library and learned so much about LBJ (even though we thought we knew a lot about him beforehand)

I was in Austin on business and decided to stop by the LBJ Presidential Library. I was a child in the Vietnam era and now a fan of Lindon B. Johnson. It was some trepidation that I crossed over the threshold. The library was more...More

The LBJ library is a hidden quiet gem. Even if you are not a history buff you will enjoy a stroll through this quiet and almost cathedral like building. The reproduction of the oval office is really impressive and the period pieces make you feel...More

This is one of my favorite Presidential Libraries. It is organized in chronological order so it was easier for me to understand the historical events in the 60’s. The movie is well documented and at the same time concise. Staff very attentive and knowledgeable. Definitely,...More

This is great. Wonderful exhibits. About two hours to tour somewhat quickly. Impressively done with no sugarcoating the past.

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.
