Are you ready to let your kids go to college? Even when they are really young UT grounds are a wonderful place to explore! There is entertainment for everyone, no matter what they like. Take your backpacks, fill your water bottles and lets go!
We like to start our tour in 21st street. There is a great photo opportunity at the littlefield fountain. It is a world war I memorial monument that was completed in 1933. It was built from granite, bronze and limestone. Next to the fountain you can find the Harry Ransom Center. It is a small but very interesting museum. It owns one of the few complete Gutenberg bibles! This are believed to be the first printed books in existence. They also have one of the first photographs. You can have a snack outside the Center and below the trees.
The LBJ Museum and Library is a fun and interactive way to engage children with their history. This enormous building is located in the grounds of UT, next to I35. The exhibits are located in the first, second and tenth floor. Most of them are permanent but they have a few temporary ones that we have loved. The rest of the floors are reserved for the library section.
A short video or a walk around show the most important events of LBJ's life and legacy. In the first floor you can also feel the Johnson treatment by taking a picture.
