On Saturday, the LBJ Presidential Library will unveil its multi-million dollar renovation. Those with the museum say the redesign offers visitors a rich cultural and historical destination.
Until now, the LBJ Library has been the only presidential library in the country not to charge admission. After careful planning and consideration, the LBJ Foundation Board, with the support of the Johnson family, decided to begin charging $8 for adults and $3 for children in order to sustain the evolving institution.
"The redesign is an exciting new chapter in the history of the LBJ Library as a dynamic, forward-thinking organization," Larry Temple, chairman of the LBJ Foundation, said. "President Johnson wanted the library to use the best technology available, giving visitors a comprehensive, engaging experience."
On Saturday, December 22--what would have been the late Lady Bird Johnson's 100th birthday--the museum will not charge admission to the museum as part of the celebration. YNN's Paul Brown got a preview of the big changes.
