The 22nd Annual Austin Museum Day, a free celebration with more than 40 museums in central Texas, including the LBJ Presidential Library, welcoming visitors with special programming for visitors of all ages, was Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019.

Austin Museum Day

At the library, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of Motown Records. Visitors were invited to explore our special exhibition, Motown: The Sound of Young America, curated by the GRAMMY Museum, to learn about the evolution of the label, view personal artifacts from some of its biggest artists, and do their take on some of Motown's biggest hits.

Other activities included:

  • A family-friendly music and instruments activity with The Austin Chamber Music Center 
  • Free Detroit-style pizza from Via 313
  • Musical performances by the Matchmaker Band
  • Voter registration drive with the Travis County Tax Office
  • Free LBJ Library backpack giveaway for the first 800 kids!
