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.
Would you like to go to a goat ranch? How about a goat ranch turned zoo? The Austin Zoo started as a small farm with mostly domesticated animals. In 1990 it began rescuing wild animals until they became a non-profit sanctuary. Now they have over 300 animals in their 20 acre land.
The Bob Bullock museum is offering an amazing exhibition granted to give you a ride to the past . Pong to Pokémon brings us playable consoles from the Atari to recent game apps. Our kids loved to find Minecraft but were strangely enthralled by Sonic the Hedgehog. They were also amused by the different controls that each console offered. If you keep circling you will get to a room that was turned into an arcade. They heard Angry birds and Guitar hero in the background but kept trying to win the Space Invaders. Endless tries without spending a dime!
If you don’t want to miss the opportunity to revive your youth, head to the museum before march 18th or check our next adventures!
One of our favorite caves to visit in Central Texas, is Cave Without A Name!
Located outside of Boerne, TX, this cave is filled with Stalactites, Stalagmites, Soda Straws, Cave Drapery, lots of Cave Bacon, and more fun structures that use our imagination to see. We even see bats sleeping inside the cave.
Covered and uncovered picnic tables for lunch and a few nature trails to investigate. Overall, an A-plus place to visit!
We like to visit this cave at least once/year and should be on your visit list!
