There is so much history of the LBJ years,, be sure to allow enough time to browse and read .. We would recommend this Library to anyone who enjoys going to museums, something for everyone,
Like most history museums, the collection is very diverse and includes objects ranging from Middle Eastern antiquities and coins to postage stamps to Oval Office furniture.

The State History Museum is a very good bet for history lovers and people who love museums.
This is one of the best museums ever in terms of distinctly Texas history, and much of it is both informative and intriguing.

We found it was a very well organized and detailed museums representing Texas and all eras.
Wow...one of the best Military Museums I have been too!
#4 of 57 Museums in Austin
Although there are fantastic Presidential museums, Texas State History and Natural History museums within in walking distance, this one trumps them all.
We expect well known art museums to deliver just what their PR says they offer.

Best children't museums far and wide
Some of the other children's museums we've visited are either too small and meant for the younger crowd or are so massive that you get lost in the exhibits.

One exhibit in the museum explains how bronze sculptures are made by the wax resist method, which I found interesting, and the gardens are wonderful, with water features and sculptures in different sizes.
The admission fee in nominal and includes video, garden viewing and indoor museum which clarifies the atists techniques.

I have been to the Louvre, Vatican Museums, Uffizi Gallery, London's National Gallery and many more.
This is one of quite a few wonderful museums in Austin, but what sets it apart is that it is actually part of the University of Austin campus.

It's not for people to stare at like an art museum, it's interactive and fascinating how often the art is changing.

This museum is a tribute to the German-born sculptor Elisabet Ney came to Texas and represented the state with her sculptures at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago 1893.
This small museum of the Artist's workspace is both off-beat, and off the beaten path.

They have some trails around the complex and an art museum.
The actual museum building is a historical home that was converted into a museum.

We were welcomed into the studios of local artists, saw a diverse group of museums, learned about the history and culture of the city, enjoyed shopping and some fabulous restaurants.
We stopped at multiple artist studios and then people's gallery and a museum.

The Museum is dedicated to cultural enrichment and education through the use of their collection of contemporary Mexican Latino, and Latin American Art.
Nice museum / art gallery, located in a good spot downtown for a walk-in while your out doing other things.

On the day myself and my girlfriend visited we were lucky enough to be brought around by the museums resident paranormalist Saul.
As someone who's been to dozens of similar museums (my parents had a soft spot for Ripley's-esque attractions when I was growing up) this one was a lot of fun.

Now a history museum, the Neill Cochran house was the first house built that far north of town, by the same architect who built other Austin classics like the governor's mansion and the French Legation.
I love taking my family to the Neill-Cochran House Museum for activities and exhibits.

They have an eclectic selection of contemporary art that is displayed in a museum type style.
Yet it had the professional layout and feel of a museum.

In 2015 with a family member, I went to it to see a travelling exhibit on the 1936 Berlin Olympics, which the U.S. Holocaust Museum had organized.
