  • So informative, clean and nicely furnished in period pieces, helpful staff. I learned so much about him and his family that doesn't get talked about in school. Be aware that there are multiple stairs if you have mobility issues. The ranger spoke loud enough for me to hear when the tourists went upstairs as I am in long leg/ankle brace. I appreciated that so much. The fact that they have on display actual garments that President Johnson made himself is so impressive as well as quilts/handiwork of his wife Eliza. I recommend any American History buff or National Park enthusiast to see this.
