This state park was really great. The farm had a really nice volunteer who took us around and explained how early life was back then. The chickens were free to roam and we even saw a steer. You can walk anywhere and see the recreated early 20th century houses. On the LBJ exhibits: what a beautiful ranch. Take at least... More

I would plan about three to four hours for your tour of the LBJ Ranch. Each stop has interesting information even when it is 101 degrees outside. The history on the Texas White House was informative and the guide was very knowledgeable. I would not recommend the tour of the house to children under the age of eight years old,... More

Great historical visit and a great lesson in history about LBJ's growing up. Our guide Charlotte was great and gave us a good sense of how LBJ learned his political techniques from his father. Also, the museum next door was wonderful too.

Informative welcome center gave an overview prior to the park ranger tour of the Texas White House. Tour gave snapshot of both public and private lives of LBJ and Lady Bird - who was obviously the brains behind the image...

In the middle of the town to which he brought electricity, the historical site which includes his boyhood home and visitor center captures his presidency without gush. A park ranger takes one on an informative tour of the house (every hour, at the top of the hour) and answers questions. Across the street, other rangers are available to answer questions... More

Hot summer day but amazingly cool when standing on front porch under the shade of the large oaks. Could feel the essence of both LBJ and Lady Bird. Her love of nature and his of technology. I found looking into their closets very interesting. The cars were also interesting. Glad to see some cattle still crazing on the ranch plus... More

This is a ride through history - such memories for those of the age. We had toured the LBJ library in Austin, and made it a point to visit the ranch afterwards. Your drive around the property has several placards placed along the way where you can read up on the history and majesty of the ranch from your car.... More

Though every bit of promotional material shows for this site shows a photo of the front of the house, on the tour that you pay for, you are never once allowed to see the front of the house, the way the Johnsons and their visitors would have approached (when arriving by car). They make you get to the house via... More

Whether you are an admirer of LBJ or not, this historic site is well worth the visit. Only open since the passing of Lady Bird there is a nice museum and film showing onsite as well as access to the first floor of the ranch and the garage where some of LBJ's vehicles are kept. The tour of the home... More

It was very interesting to see inside the president's small plane sitting on the runway behind the visitor center, to tour the car museum, and to walk inside the ground floor of the ranch house. The sense of the land, with the Pedernales River up high after rains, and driving part of the ranch behind the house and seeing the... More
