The newly redesigned core exhibit of the LBJ Presidential Library opened on December 22, 2012, which would have been Mrs. Johnson’s 100th birthday. The free event featured live music, birthday cake in honor of Mrs. Johnson, book signings, and a special US Postal Service stamp cancellation.

The new Library exhibits include:

- Unprecedented access to private telephone conversations of the President

- An interactive Vietnam War exhibit where visitors experience elements of the President’s decision-making process

- The ability to join the conversation through social media as visitors tour exhibits       

- New theaters and films about President Johnson, civil rights, LBJ’s legacy, and the First Family

These state-of-the art exhibits will give visitors a contemporary experience relating to one of the most significant Presidents and eras in our country’s history.
