The LBJ Library's current exhibition is Get in the Game: The Fight for Equality in American Sports, celebrating athletes who have broken barriers and spoken out for equality, both on and off the playing field.
When exploring the library's exhibitions, visitors step into a replica of the Oval Office, hear about life in the White House from the president's daughters, delve into the digital archives to read letters, watch videos, view photos from the library's collections, and experience the decade of the Johnson Administration – the turbulent 1960s.
