This is my first visit to a presidential library. This was more museum than library, but in a good way. All of the interactive features operated; I especially enjoyed the tabletop ones on the Vietnam War. I confess I skipped the “Colin Kapernick” section completely...More

Our family (17, 15 and 11 year olds) toured the Library today. We all enjoy history and we wowed by everything we learned about LBJ. We would certainly recommend taking the time to visit.

A must-see when you are in Austin. The exhibit does an excellent job of describing Johnson's entire life and the impact he had on the US as president. He was an amazing man with a very difficult job at a very challenging time.

Wonderful beautiful educational!!!! Very modern museum displaying the dresses, China, letters, videos and more from an important time in history. We learned so much!! I highly recommend it. And, there’s an Uber line for pick up.

This is a must see if you are interested in U.S. presidential history. The exhibits are very informative and have a time-capsule effect by taking you back to the 1960s.

We enjoyed this stop. Have heard and read many negative sides of LBJ and this gave, of course, a completely different perspective. Quite impressive and easy to follow lay out they have here and hardly no crowds mid week.

Park in parking lot 38, it’s free. Museum wasn’t as nice as other Pres libraries, but it had lots of info.

We definitely recommend a visit here. It was fascinating to experience the atmosphere of his time in office, and also to learn some background about why he made some of the decisions that he did. It’s a self-guided tour, and there are some video clips...More

This is a great library, the museum balances out the good and the bad of a controversial President. They give a fair hearing to the criticisms and are not ashamed of promoting the many positive achievements. Historically it was an exciting and turbulent era touching...More

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.
