The Sam Rayburn Museum documents the life and career of Samuel Taliaferro Rayburn (1882–1961), the longest-serving House Speaker in American history.
Dedicated in 1957, this elegant Greek Revival structure of white Georgia marble exhibits photographs, original letters, political cartoons, art, furniture and memorabilia from Rayburn’s life and times. It houses a duplicate of his U.S. Capitol office and also contains his extensive personal library. The site is administered by the University of Texas Center for American History.
The Sam Rayburn Library and Museum is a short drive away from the Sam Rayburn House Texas State Historic Site.
