We started at the Visitors Center where we received excellent materials so that we could pick how much time we wanted to spend and decide on a walking tour or driving tour. Since we did not have a lot of time, we chose to just drive around the property. We did stop to take some beautiful blue bonnet photos.

And before you leave go out and see the swing toward the river. Fascinating information about LBJ and his presidency and the importance this ranch played in our history. A MUST SEE if you are even close. I was NOT an LBJ fan but you have to appreciate this man and his work ethic. "Lady Bird" is remarkable. Thanks to... More

I've been here twice...once in 1998 while Lady Bird was still alive and still occupied the house on occasions. The tour at that time was on a tour bus and the house was not part of the tour. I visited again, this time with family in 2014 and the tour changed dramatically with the passing a few years back of... More

A working farm with long horns, lambs, historic vehicles and a Presidential Plane. The tour of the Texas Whitehouse was very interesting and worth the small entrance fee.

We were on a back-roads tour of Texas Hill Country and saw the Johnson Museum set-up in Johnson City. There, staff informed us about the LBJ Ranch park and tour...about 10 miles down the road. You have to check in at the State Park Visitor Center to get a free driving permit; then you over the river and through cattle... More

We visited in 2007 on the last weekend the family was able to use the home before the parks took over. It was fun to come back and see the home where President Johnson lived and spent 491 days of his 6 year presidency. It was interesting to see where political decisions were made and people visited. His office has... More

During a trip to San Antonio I did a day trip to see the LBJ Ranch. It's only about an hour a half from the city. I started in Johnson City and went to the visitor center and took a tour of the boyhood home, which is really great if you have time. After that I drove over to the... More

We stopped at this national park during our trip of the Texas hill country. We didn't intend to stop, but made a last minute decision to pull in. So glad we did! The 600+ acre ranch is filled with fascinating history. This city girl enjoyed seeing a working ranch and the wide open space that 600 acres offers. My kids... More

My wife and I visited this park last March! I am not a museum person but this park had an excellent museum and rangers and volunteers that were really helpful! We really enjoyed going through his boyhood home. It was very interesting hearing and seeing the place were he grew up!
