It is a small tour with the NP guide. Very interesting stories. I look at life in the USA in TX. It was the informative years for LBJ and it showed as a Statesman later in life. It is a quick stop and good parking. Go there on your way to the LBJ White House.

The boyhood home of Lyndon B. Johnson is located near the Visitor's Center and should be your first stop. A ranger-guided tour of the home will give you a wonderful view of life for the future president in his early years. It may be said with confidence that Johnson learned his earliest lessons in politics on the porch of this... More

We all loved it! So beautiful lit up with candles and lanterns. Makes you feel like you back in time. Imagine the things that went on here. One of our presidents grew up here ring around this lil house and large property. Wonderful time. A total must do!

It was interesting to see how LBJ lived before he became president. He was very low-key. My Dad said he was a real red-neck!

We stopped in Johnston City to see the boyhood home of LBJ. The home has been preserved and you can have an informative tour of the house. You can see where his father, a legislator, worked and LBJ learned about politics. The rooms are simple but well laid out, not much luxury. There was indoor water as a result of... More

This is a ten minute or so stop while visiting the national park, but it provides background to the President and his humble origins.

We arrived in Johnson City at 9am on a coach tour. It was deserted ... half expected to see tumbleweed blowing down the main street. We were give an hour to explore the area. That was 59 minutes too long. Nothing opened until 10am ... we couldn't even get a coffee anywhere. Most of us on the coach ended up... More

The tour of LBJ's boyhood home was very interesting and informative! To see how one of our greatest presidents lived as a boy was truly an honor! The home is very well preserved and decorated. Before the tour, you may explore the history and life of LBJ, along with watching a documentary film with on LBJ or Ladybird Johnson. We... More

Very, very interesting. A must see. I was impressed with the original condition of the property and of course, the history.
