The Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) Library and Museum located in Austin, TX is one of the ten presidential libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. The library houses forty million pages of historical documents that include papers from the public career of Lyndon Baines Johnson and from his close associates.


The LBJ museum provides year round public viewing of its permanent historical and cultural exhibits. Special activates and exhibits are sponsored privately by the Friends of the LBJ Library and its parent organization, the LBJ Foundation. 


This Oval Office replica duplicates the actual office at 7/8th scale. The office looks exactly as it did during Johnson's presidency including the desk he used beginning is his Senate days through the White House years. Johnson kept abreast of the news with a teletype machine and three screen television console to watch all three networks simultaneously.A fifty foot long photoengraved mural depicts the national elective offices help by LBJ and the Presidents under whom he served. This work was created by Naomi Savage who selected the photos from the Library's 100,000 item collection, and produced this impressive work in magnesium.
