This was a great history lesson for both Texas and American history. Very fascinating and gave us a great appreciation for LBJ.

As a child of the 60's, I rememer LBJ and Lady Bird very well and this was my 2nd visit here. I think that I enjoyed it more this year, especially after growing up and being able to appreciate his place in history. Do the driving tour along with the special DVD that you can purchase. It brings the whole... More

The ranch is beautiful and extremely well maintained. The guided tour by the Park Service was very informative, but slightly over-dramatic....yes I know exactly where I was when I heard that Kennedy had been shot.

We found this very interesting and informative. I'm sure kids would enjoy it too. It did take longer than I anticipated but we enjoyed it. We moved thru everything fairly quickly but it still took a couple of hours.

The grounds of the Johnson ranch are beautiful even if they are bisected with the runway for LBJ's plane. Be sure to allow time to take the driving tour.

Specifically, this is the National Historic Park which has two components: a Ranch Tour Route and the Texas White House (source is the brochure from the park). As a technically oriented person, I found portions of the Ranch Tour more interesting to me for taking pictures than the Texas White House. Note that photography is not allowed inside the LBJ...

I totally agreed with review from jrsmith8 as a lot of clarifications needed to make. 1) Most people visited to LBJ Ranch and Texas White House. Both places are not in Johnson City but many reviews were placed under this address. Especially Texas White House should not be listed under Johnson City. Correct address for LBJ Ranch/House is 199 State... More

Be careful. I've noticed that some reviewers are confusing the LBJ Ranch area and burial site near Stonewall, Texas (14 miles or so west of this site) with this attraction. This "historical park" is located in downtown Johnson City near the intersection of Hwys. 290 and 281 and is across the street from the boyhood home. In this attraction you... More

Enjoyed visiting this Historical site. Very knowledgeable tour guides. Lots of History here, and the Johnson family are also buried here. The LBJ Ranch is huge, it seems like you are driving forever. The size of the Air Force One planes have definitely increased over the years.
