COVID-19 Enhanced Safety Measures

The LBJ Presidential Library has implemented enhanced health and safety measures, but we cannot guarantee that any visitor will not contract COVID-19 while in the museum. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place at this time. Visitors to the LBJ Presidential Library voluntarily assume all risks related to COVID-19 exposure. In the event of a reported COVID-19 exposure during their visit, the person making the reservation will be notified by the email they provided on their reservation and that person will be responsible for notifying all members of their party.

Not Feeling Well?

Please stay home if you or any of your group member is sick or experiencing signs of COVID-19. Visitors agree to abide by the guidelines on the LBJ Presidential Library's website and by all instructions posted in the museum or provided by staff during the visit. If a visitor or a member of their party fails to follow the LBJ Presidential Library’s guidelines and instructions, they may be denied entry or required to leave the premises.

Visitors testing positive for COVID-19 (or guests who have a fever or are otherwise symptomatic on the date of their planned visit) should not visit the LBJ Library and are eligible to reschedule their visit or receive a refund. Please email on weekdays to rebook or refund, or call (512) 721-0177 to rebook or refund.

Face Coverings

Face coverings are not required at this time.  Face coverings are available for purchase at the LBJ Store.

Entering the LBJ Presidential Library

Visitors are advised to check their temperature before arrival on the day of the timed ticket to confirm that they do not have a fever. Any visitor displaying visible symptoms of COVID-19 will be denied entry.

Visitors, as well as their belongings, are subject to inspection. The requirement for bag inspection and visitor screening at the entrance will result in an inability to guarantee our security officers can maintain a 6-foot social distance during these procedures.

Only one bag, purse, backpack, or diaper bag is allowed per person. Bags or backpacks cannot be larger than 17 × 26 inches (43 × 66 centimeters) in size. There is no coat check or area to store bags or luggage of any size.
