I said "My life is an open book"; I never said it was interesting.

LBJ Presidential Library, Austin
I visited the LBJ Library on campus at UT in Austin. It has some interesting exhibits, particularly those dealing with Nov 22nd 1963, Vietnam, and the Space Program. Admission is free.
There is an exact replica of the Oval Office as it appeared during the LBJ Administration, complete with the actual furniture and desk he used. I've got to admit it seemed smaller than I pictured it, even when I learned it was a 7/8 scale reproduction.
I'm not sure why I found the exhibit of the clothes they were wearing in the famous "swearing in" photo so fascinating.
