I only knew what I was taught in school about LBJ and the rangers in the park gave some information that would not be found anywhere else. They told stories about him and how he spent more than 25% of his presidency at this location. They told stories about how he brought dignitaries there and placed them at a disadvantage by either placing them in situations or seating arrangements that gave him an advantage. There is a lot more information given either in person or by a cd or GPS provided at the visitor center.
We went to the boyhood home about 14 miles east but it was not near as interesting as the park. A quick walk through is worth it but really didn't encounter anything that was that remarkable.
The tour of the Texas White House is worth the small fee ($2/person). Definitely recommend it.
