My son and I enjoyed learning so much about 41. The interactive exhibits entertained my 11 year old son, and the rest was great to me. The price is right, too.

Very well done exhibit. I learned much more about the man, his family and what he accomplished during the Presidency. The staff were helpful and lovely. The gift shop was much nicer than the LBJ gift shop.

Highly recommend if you're in town. Don't miss the intro video when you walk in. Also, in the little sunroom with all the books, the tv show was worth sitting down to watch.
