LBJ was well known as a storyteller and famous for his jokes. This exhibit features a moving, life-sized animatronic LBJ surrounded by political cartoons, most of which have been signed by the artist. The stories visitors will hear are the ones he often told at dinners or events, and guests can be heard laughing in the background.
