Regardless how you feel about his politics, a visit to this place is quite interesting from a purely personal perspective. It's interesting to see how someone from a poor family rises to President of the United States. His mother valued education. LBJ became a teacher. That had enormous impact on his life and future policies. See the historic homes of... More

You can tour his home and the ranch for $3. It's like stepping back in to the 1960s, and if you lived during that era it's really a blast. Very educational and worth the trip. Tip the tour guides. They only make $12.50 a day!

What an opportunity to experience the life of LBJ by touring the vast ranch that includes stopping at the cemetery where he and family members are buried, the home where he was born, the area along the river where he held barbeques when making this the weekend White House , among other things. This is well organized with a map... More

The LBJ Ranch takes longer to drive to from the check in office than to tour. But maybe that is because of the 3 tour buses already there. The park rangers do a great job answering questions. There were 3 tvs in every room...because once upon a time there were only 3 tv networks: NBC, CBS, and ABC. Congressman/President Johnson... More

A self-drive around the ranch property until you get to the home. You can make stops at the family cemetery LBJ & Lady Bird are buried along with about 4 generations of the family. Across the road from the cemetery is a re-creation of the home LBJ was born in. Finally you get to the hangar (a plane & some... More

The visitors' center in Johnson City is a must introduction to LBJ history. The childhood home tour gives an interesting overview of LBJ's parents and LBJ's boyhood. The museum presents his story in a time line which coordinated his life with the history of the country at the time. At the museum a cd can be purchased which gives detailed... More

My wife and I visited the LBJ Ranch and really enjoyed it. It is always interesting to see how Presidents lived when not in Washington. Being from Texas, we understand the calling of the land and cattle. The Park Service does a great job of presenting the ranch and allows you to drive all the way through it, seeing all... More

WE toured the LBJ Historical Park in Jan. 2014, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially the tour through the Johnson home, which also served as the Texas White House during his term as President. The Park Service guided tour was fabulous! I'd forgotten so much of how the technology was back then....intercoms in each room, three televisions in several rooms (there... More
