This is a smaller history center adjacent to the LBJ Library. Worth a look. Has an interesting current history about Black Americans in early US history. Also has a research library. Friendly, helpful staff.

Reading room does not have free WiFi; I think it is the only research facility I have ever used that did not!

I thought the Briscoe Center would have a lot to see. That is not the case. The have 1 rotating exhibit that takes about 20 minutes to go through. It is mainly a place to do research work on American History. It is right near the LBJ Library and you park in the same lot on the UT campus.
