On Saturday, March 3, the LBJ Presidential Library will participate in The University of Texas at Austin's Explore UT Day. Admission will be free to all visitors.

Held annually, Explore UT aims to inform students, parents, teachers, and community members from across the state about the importance of public research institutions and higher education in Texas. The day-long event invites Texans of all ages to experience robust research experiences, hands-on demonstrations and experiments, and participate in the richness of the university's scholarship and knowledge.
