The library, adjacent to the LBJ School of Public Affairs, occupies 14 acres (57,000 m²) on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. The top floor of the library has a 7/8ths scale replica of the Oval Office decorated as it was during Johnson's presidency. The museum provides year-round public viewing of its permanent historical and cultural exhibits and its many traveling exhibits. The library is the only presidential library not to charge admission, and has the highest visitation of any presidential library (with the exception of the first two or three years of any new presidential library, which in some cases sees more visitors).
Upon her death in July 2007 Lady Bird Johnson lay in repose in the Library and Museum, just as her husband had 34 years earlier.
