We had a 3 year old, a six year old and an 8 year old with us. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the audio tour and we visited each site. Once we got to the home of the former President and his wife the kids were asked by our great guide, Kathleen, to count all of the telephones on the... More

The birthplace of LBJ, his family home and the Texas White House and then the family burial plots are all very interesting.The home is modest by today's standards. LBJ spent over 400 days during his presidency at the ranch, where he conducted his business and met with foreign dignitaries. He passed away at the age of 64 while in residence.... More

We have visited the LBJ site many times over the past 25 years. Although we miss the bus ride of years ago, the new format of more self-guided tours is fine. We did have a great tour of the Texas White House with our tour guide. She had many interesting tidbits regarding where, who, and when many of the items... More

As always, the National Park Service does an excellent job of preserving and explaining the history of our country. Our guide at the "Western White House" did a wonderful job of telling us about the house and its meaning for the Johnson family. The tours fill up quickly, but there is a lot to see and read in the visitor... More

There are several great reviews here (see May), but I would just add that if you like "early" Texas history, be sure and also see the Sauer-Beckmann Farm , for a "living history" example of how people lived and worked the land in the early 1900s.. (it is just a short drive from the LBJ Home, and the family that... More

Driving through the ranch, seeing the cattle (some of whom are roaming free), and following the life of LBJ, in conjunction with the state historical park, was a real lesson in the history of our country and of the man. There are many things to see, but probably the most outstanding was the Texas White House. One could almost feel... More

We have visited Fredericksburg several times and never visited the LBJ ranch. We scheduled it into our itinerary for our latest trip to the hill country, and we wish we had visited sooner. We spent 5 hours between the two historic parks and would definitely go back. We learned so much, and enjoyed being outdoors amidst all this history. The... More

The first "Western White House" is a great stop for adults. Kids probably won't enjoy it that much as it is not geared towards them. As he made very clear in his will, the ranch is still a working ranch and you will see much wildlife. The house tour is wonderful as you will go through all the rooms and... More

Like most national parks, this one does an excellent job of portraying LBJ's illustrious life and political career. I had a feeling before I went that I didn't know enough about his time as a congressman or president, who he was, or what he stood for. The exhibit at the visitor center filled in the gaps. There are also two... More
