A reconstruction of the Oval Office as it appeared during LBJ's presidency is on the 8th floor of the Library, around the corner from the Reading Room. Note the portrait of George Washington.
At the other end of the Oval Office is a portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt, who helped Lyndon Johnson become an effective Congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives.
