LBJ Museum opened Monday with MLK exhibit


The Lyndon Baines Johnson Museum of San Marcos will join the Dunbar Heritage Association and other local groups to celebrate the late Martin Luther King’s birthday Monday, Jan. 17.

The museum will be open to the public beginning at 9 a.m. Monday with coffee and hot cider available so that those attending the 10:30 a.m. program on the steps of the Hays County Court House and walk to Dunbar Center may drop by the museum before the other events begin.

A special exhibit dedicated to the late civil rights leader will be on display, along with an exhibit of the architect’s rendering that depicts the museum’s planned expansion. The museum board has also invited the LBJ/MLK Crossroads committee to display information on the status of that group’s plans to mark the spot where Martin Luther King and Lyndon Baines Johnson Drive intersect near the current Hays County Law Enforcement Center.

The LBJ Museum of San Marcos is normally open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
