Create an itinerary including LBJ Presidential Library
Get a good sense of President Johnson's character, intellect, and impact on the country at LBJ Presidential Library. The library houses millions of pages of historical documents. As you enter the lobby, the first thing you see is the President's limousine. Start from the top floor by walking through a replica of the Oval Office arranged as it was during Johnson's presidency. See a portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt, LBJ's three television sets, and his many books. Look for the desk on which the president signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965. You can also see significant artifacts from the days surrounding the assassination of JFK. Look for a telephone in a corner to listen to conversations concerning this historic event. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Austin fast, fun, and easy.

  • I didn’t know much about the presidential libraries being European until my American boss very sensibly suggested I go and have a look. Wow are the words I’d use this is a master stroke to present...

  • Excellent museum of America in the 1960s. I knew LBJ got a lot done in a short time, but I had no idea how much. And you can’t beat a place that offers free parking in Austin!

  • Beautiful space and with scheduled ticket times it’s actually BETTER with the process of pacing and spacing that has developed from pandemic constraints. You’ll learn about LBJ *and* Lady Bird. There was a temporary exhibit upstairs as well, featuring Mohammad Ali. I’d probably suggest you give yourself 90 minutes and my thinking is that children under 8 or 9 might not find enough engaging materials... but !hey! treat yourself to a date with your partner, gather some friends and make it part of a cultural/history exploration day, or for my true Presidential Library Fans... go alone! A few interesting products in the gift shop...
  • The staff couldn't have been nicer if they tried! The Lady Bird section was delightful! It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend visiting the library as soon as you can!
