This was one of my must-dos while in Texas. Great place to stop and see so many great artifacts from the mid-20th century. Also a great history lesson for that time era. Especially interesting was it not sugar-coating the horror of the vietnam war.

I didn't know that much about LBJ, but learned that he was quite a man, having many accomplishments during his Presidency. I enjoyed listening to the many phone conversations and the thoughts from his family about living in the White House, the presidential portraits and...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.
