Plan An Event

Presidential Libraries are national treasures—there are only thirteen of them—and we are pleased that the LBJ Presidential Library has been enjoyed by many diverse groups.

Since the Library was dedicated by President Johnson on May 22, 1971, it has served as an incomparable venue for events attended by Presidents, First Ladies, foreign heads of state, and other dignitaries and celebrities. On February 3, 2009, we opened the Library to outside guests and have hosted hundreds of dinners, lectures, and receptions for groups of all sizes. Our events staff looks forward to working with you to make your event just as memorable.
