The LBJ Time Machine

A session at MCN 2012

Thursday 8th November, 2012

1:50pm to 2:10pm (PST)

I will describe the inspiration and implementation of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum’s LBJ Time Machine, a multimedia blog on Tumblr (). The Time Machine is an interactive exhibit that draws content from the Museum collections, the LBJ archives, and the history of our institution itself to tell the story of the Johnsons and their times, from LBJ’s birth in 1908 to Museum reopening in 2012. I’ll share what the joys and frustrations have been, and how other institutions might leverage social media to create interactive exhibits outside the museum—without spending a dime!
