(Austin) - You've enjoyed a scrumptious turkey dinner, you’ve caught up with relatives and friends, the football games are predictable, and you feel the need to move around. Come to the LBJ Library and Museum on Thanksgiving Day or any of the holidays. It's free and educational. There's also an opportunity to shop.

In addition to the permanent exhibition interpreting the life of the 36th President, the LBJ Library and Museum is featuring the exhibit, CRONKITE: Eyewitness to a Century. As one of the nation's preeminent journalists, Walter Cronkite's broadcasts brought virtually every major news story of the last half of the twentieth century to the American people. CRONKITE: Eyewitness to a Century is the first exhibit to explore his experiences with some of the most crucial moments in history, including D-Day, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal, and the space race.

Tax-free shopping at the Museum Store is December 3th and 4th. The Store features a variety of stocking stuffers under $20: Air Force One toys, holiday ornaments, wildflower seeds, puzzles, books, t-shirts, stationery, historical Hurdy Gurdies, and more.
