LBJ Presidential Library

Save to my Account

Lyndon Baines Johnson presided over the US in the 1960s—one of the most exciting, angst-filled decades in US history—and the events are well represented here: the Vietnam War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the assassinations of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr and Robert Kennedy.

As an official presidential library, it has all the requisite papers and documents, but its also got fascinating displays with significant mementoes of LBJ’s time in office, including his presidential limo, a moon rock, and gifts from foreign heads of state. (‘Why, thank you Chiang Kai-shek, for this lovely Chinese tomb sculpture!’)

Don’t miss an elevator trip to the eighth floor for a look at a near-actual-size 7/8 scale replica of Johnson’s Oval Office and an exhibit on Lady Bird Johnson, the president’s wife, who found success on her own promoting environmental causes.
