This is my second time to visit the Boyhood Home and it was just as interesting now as it was 20 years ago. It is in superb condition and the park rangers know their subject so it is a very informative tour.

LBJ's boyhood home is interesting to see. It is across the street from its accompanying visitor center in Johnson City. Not to be confused with the LBJ Ranch area 14 or so miles to the west, this attraction takes you back to his elementary school and teenage years in Johnson City. My wife and I toured the facility accompanied by... More

We went out to Johnson City Texas and went by the boyhood home of President Lyndon B Johnson. It was like walking in to the past it was very very neat to see such a modest boy head home which in 1901 would have been a mansion.

This place was a self guided tour and it was interesting to see the ranch that LBJ grew up on. The area had longhorn cattle in the pen. Wild flowers were blooming

Loved the ambiance. The first time I went was Christmas. It couldn't have been a better experience. Took you back in time. Caroling, hot chocolate, rocking on the front porch. Quiet , not so busy.

Take a step back in time when you are visiting the boyhood home. Good tour guides, centrally located in Johnson City. Don't miss this tour!

Although the childhood home of LBJ was closed, we were able to go in to the Visitor Centre, just across the road, which is devoted to his tenure in office and is full of information, though we only had half an hour before it closed. There is a gift shop and there are restrooms. We followed the trail out to... More

On our way from Austin to LBJ's Ranch, we went to LBJ's Boyhood Home i Johnson City. We got friendly service and good information. Well, you don't travel from far away to se LBJ's Boyhood Home, but it is an interesting stop on your route.

Definitely make a stop in Johnson City to see a great film and history on LBJ then take a free tour of his boyhood home to hear the influence both parents made on this man.

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.
