The Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum is located at the University of Texas in Austin. After its dedication in 1971 it became one of thirteen Presidential libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Association. The library houses over 45 million pages of documents, 650,000 photographs, and several thousand hours of recordings all pertaining to President Johnson’s political career. While the museum houses over fifty thousand items, the main focus is on items donated by the Johnson family. These items include the outfits worn by President and Mrs. Johnson on inauguration day in 1964, items from the Oval Office, and the desk President Johnson used when he signed the Voting Rights Act in 1965.
