Hubby and I both enjoy Presidential history (whether we are a "fan" of that President or not). The Ranger gave us a very interesting tour. Some furniture is original but copies of what family members chose to be displayed. Very well maintained. Recommend this first and then go to the Texas White House.

Located between Fredericksburg and Austin, we stopped to tour the LBJ Tourist Center which is next to the boyhood home of Lyndon Johnson. Jack, the Ranger who conducted the tour, was absolutely wonderful - very knowledgeable with a very approachable manner. To see the tiny rooms (not what we are accustomed to today) and imagine a family of 7 living... More

This is a beautiful set up of a visitor center and grounds for the settlement and boyhood home. The inside of the visitors center has many presidential pieces and is set up as a museum and gift shop. The home is a short walk across the street and has informative signs along the way. Tours are offered of the home.... More

The guide was adequate but the house is so much worth seeing. It is a great complement to the visit to the Texas White House. It is very well preserved and illustrates LBJ's roots so well.

We began at the visitor center where we enjoyed the movie on the life and person of Lady Bird Johnson, as well as perusing the exhibitions and gift shop at the centre. This was followed by a 20 minute guided tour of boyhood home with a ranger, which was interesting and informative about life in this area 100 years ago.... More

Nice visitor center with helpful volunteers. The park ranger who conducted the tour of the boyhood home itself was friendly and knowledgeable and informed about his subject, Lyndon Baines Johnson. He made the visit worthwhile. You've got to visit if you have any appreciation for LBJ.

Visiting the Lyndon Baines Johnson boyhood home and the nearby LBJ Ranch is a must for anyone interested in history. Located just over an hour west of Austin in the hill country of Texas, the home and ranch are operated by the National Park Service. The ranch, also known as the Texas White House during LBJ's five years as president,... More

It's nice to see this juxtaposed with the Ranch. This was the small house, from the youth of LBJ. If you visit the ranch you can see the birth house and the ranch (where he died) this house is the middle part of the story. It's where LBJ came of age and gained a lot of the confidence and knowledge... More

It was very informative to see where President Johnson was born. We had an excellent tour guide that was dedicated to his job.

I learned more about LBJ from our Park Service Guide (Charlotte I think) in her greatly informative tour than I have ever read. The home is certainly interesting but her unhurried explanation of the forces and family that shaped LBJ's subsequent career were outstanding.
