A New Day For LBJ
Our Redesign Is Complete!
The new exhibits opened to the public on December 22, on what would have been Lady Bird Johnson's 100th birthday. They feature many unique audiovisual components, new films and touch screen interactives, a database of telephone recordings, and a story-telling animatronic LBJ. Schedule a tour of the library.

A time-lapse video of the LBJ Presidential Library redesign
On December 22, 2012, the LBJ Library opened its doors to new exhibits for a new generation. This two-and-a-half minute video shows the day-to-day progress of the redesign as it happened, including the evening of our State Dinner Gala, when donors were invited for a preview of the exhibits.
