The library is open all days of the week from 9 am till 5 pm. It is closed on Christmas and federal holidays. The research rooms remain closed on the weekends. Till 2013, it was the only presidential library which had free admission. However, to keep up with maintenance and progress, admission fee is being charged after December 2012. The fee for adults is $8, $5 seniors and $3 for children aged between 13-17.
The library has some permanent core exhibits on display. The first one is ‘November 22, 1963’ which is dedicated to the fateful day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. The exhibit has pictures, documents and audio recordings showing Kennedy and LBJ and the transition of power. What makes this library unique is the audio backup that most records have which makes the experience interesting and interactive. Another exhibit is the social justice gallery which displays the legislation passed by LBJ through telephone calls, letters, artefacts and graphics. The library in total has 45 million pages of historical documents.
The custom built limousine of LBJ which he used during the time before and during his presidency is on display in the library lobby. The car is furnished with a TV, telephone, reserve gas tank and a well built communication system. Apart from the car, the Oval Office of the White House has been replicated in the library and contains LBJ’s desk, telephone, chair and other office stationery.
The library also has a store from where you can get presidential memorabilia, jewellery, apparel, books and videos for yourself or as gifts.
