The 22nd Annual Austin Museum Day is 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.

At the library, we are celebrating the 60th anniversary of Motown Records. Curated by the GRAMMY Museum, visit our special exhibition, Motown: The Sound of Young America, and explore the evolution of the label, view personal artifacts from some of its biggest artists, and do your take on some of Motown's biggest hits.

Other activities:

  • 9-11 a.m. - The Austin Chamber Music Center will be joining us for a music and instruments activity. Great for the whole family!
  • 11 a.m.-1 p.m. - Free half-slices of Detroit-style pizza from Via 313. While supplies last. Limit two per visitor.
