We come here once a year on our drive to Fredericksburg (15-20 minute drive outside of Fredericksburg). If we have time, we do the full house tour and love it each time. Even if we don't have a lot of time to spare, we still do the driving tour and stop to see the animals. It is still a working... More

The LBJ house is both large and comfortable. One can easily imagine LBJ reaching for one of the many phones placed for his convenience throughout the house. The house has an intimate quality about it as if you are a guest of the Johnsons. Well worth a visit.

This is well worth the trip. It is off the beaten track a bit, but you'll see very interesting things that you'll not find elsewhere. You can see the Texas White House and the places important to LBJ, from the place of his birth to the place of his death.

Consider the National Historical Park in Johnson City a good pit stop on the way to the LBJ ranch. The park has a museum, LBJ's boyhood home and his grandparents' settlement. The museum is a great introduction to LBJ. It also has a 30-minute video on LBJ's years in the White House. The boyhood home, on the other hand, is... More

The highlight of the tour of this ranch was the guided tour around the house. The guide was knowledgable, witty and answered all questions. The house itself was a fascinating insight into American history. The ranch has lots of places to stop off and visit, animals and the runway complete with the presidents jet. This is well worth a visit.... More

I liked that it was easy to get to, well laid out and small enough to visit in a only a few minutes if that's all you have. It's free.

It's great to see the LBJ ranch. The home is quite nice and being able to drive around the property and stop at various points really gives you a sense of the place. It's also a working ranch so there are cows just wandering about. We had to wait for several to cross in front of our car. It also... More

Fascinating to see the modestly furnished ranch that President Johnson and Lady Bird lived in during the presidency years and beyond. Up close and personal to see their actual clothes, furnishings, and hear about the activites they hosted at the Ranch. I learned many things I never knew about Pres. Johnson. I didn't realize he was a teacher or that... More

We could have spent our entire day seeing all the wonderful things on the ranch and in President Johnson& Lady Bird's home. We saw the grave yard and took the driving tour.

We really got a great deal about of visiting the LBJ National Historical Park. As a Brit I did not know a great deal about LBJ and his wife. The film about his life was very interesting and the exhibits very readable. We did not manage to go to his childhood house. This is well worth a visit and only... More
