Description

The official presidential library of Lyndon Baines Johnson, the museum offers a balanced view of this colorful Texan. Through exhibits, short films and audio recordings, the museum tells the story of the struggle to pass the Civil Rights Act as well as Johnson’s failed efforts to end the Vietnam War. The Social Justice Gallery covers Johnson’s lesser-known efforts to combat poverty as well as important legislation supporting Medicare, public broadcasting and consumer protection. For maximum entertainment, make sure you set aside time to listen to the tapes of his phone calls. They reveal Johnson’s emotional, witty and often profane conversations with staffers and world leaders. In one famous tape, Johnson discusses the exact way he would like his trousers to fit in relation to his “bunghole.”
