Admission to the LBJ Presidential Library will be free on Monday, May 27, 2013 for Memorial Day. The Library will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Families (and doll collectors!) are invited to view a selection of dolls from the "First Ladies Collection" series by Madame Alexander, which will be on display in the Great Hall of the LBJ Library from May 21 through November 24, 2013. The dolls represent First Ladies and First Hostesses of the White House. The designers based the First Ladies' clothing on gowns worn by a First Lady for an inauguration, or other events during the Presidency. The "First Ladies Collection” consists of 38 dolls – from Martha Washington to Pat Nixon. Each doll is identified with a label and the dates she served as First Lady or First Hostess.
The entire "First Ladies Collection" can be viewed on the LBJ Presidential Library app for iPhone and iPad, available in the iTunes store for 99¢.
