The simplest way will likely be to use an USB host shield. If you google that, you would find several well documented versions.

Do you need "some keyboard" or an USB keyboard ?

Problem with arduino is that it has no usb-host capabilities.
If it has to be USB, you can use a costly USB-hostshield.

A ps2-keyboard may... be more interesting though, you can read it using  2 pins of your arduino and don't need extra hardware.

After you're receiving characters either way, it should be possible to send them to an lcd.
