Step back to the 1960s with a tour of the LBJ ranch house. The ranger guided tour of the Johnson house is really good. The exhibits at the visitor center and at the hanger are well done. Allow a couple of hours at least to see the ranch and 90 minutes or so to see the boyhood home in Johnson... More

If you're at least sixty and remember LBJ as President, then this will be a five plus for you as it was for my wife and me. If you're younger and have an interest in Presidential history then it will be at least a four. If you don't fall into either category, I think you will still enjoy this park.... More

This sight was not on our agenda but a fellow guest told us of it and I'm glad we went. It's a fascinating insight, not only into the background to LBJ, but how the US Presidency works (or worked as I doubt the way this place operated as an alternate White House could happen today.) His office is a fascinating... More

To do it right, it requires a full day. We went to the national historic site in Johnson City first and then drove approx. 14 miles to the LBJ Ranch. The national historic site has a great museum and friendly rangers. I highly recommend the settlement trail where you can see where LBJ's ancestors settled. Try to catch a ranger... More

This is a driving ( or walking or biking) tour through the Johnson Ranch, We were able to see the Family Cemetery where the entire family (including LBJ and Lady Bird) is buried. There were very few people, so we enjoyed a very leisurely drive. We were able o get out of the car at any time for photos or... More

This is a good tour of a presidential home. My family always have enjoyed visiting homes of presidents. This was very informative as the guides are very well educated on the life of LBJ and his family. The ranch is well maintained and contains most of the belongings of the family. It's worth a couple of hours of your time.

Wonderful to get a view of the family home and how they lived and worked. It contains memorabilia from President Johnson's presidency and interactive displays about the land and people that shaped a president. The furnishings are typical of such homes in that period.

Johnson home was very interesting! It is a step back in time. Guides are knowledgable. It was fun to see into the private lives of LBJ and his wife Ladybird.

This Texas White House and estate for LBJ is both beautiful and historic. When you tour the Texas Hill Country, this is a must see location that will not disappoint. Do be sure you get there before the end of the day or you could miss the tour. You can see a lot by just driving through and this is... More

I was very surprised with the quality of the restoration of the inside of the home and the exhibits. Great seeing the barns, the runway, the convertible lincolns!
