Explore Library Exhibits
When exploring the Library’s exhibits, 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.

Through innovative, state-of-the art exhibits, the political and personal lives of Lyndon and Lady Bird Johnson come alive. This contemporary experience allows visitors to understand the decisions President Johnson faced and experience his passion for critical issues such as education, civil rights, the environment, health care, and the arts. All aspects of Johnson’s presidency are explored, including the Vietnam War. Visitors can pick up a telephone to hear audio recordings of Johnson as he conducts business –a rare behind-the scenes glimpse inside the White House, found only at the LBJ Library.
