The ranch buildings and the Texas White house building are nothing great to look at themselves but the setting of the Texas Hill country with the trees is great view. The whole thing is like a time capsule of the sixties which I guess is what it is meant to be. The building tour and the information given is very... More

This gem of history is nestled in The Texas Hill Country. With the exception of Lady Bird's bedroom the home has been preserved as in the days of Lyndon Baines Johnson's presidency. The original birthplace is located on the property near the burial site of LBJ and Lady Bird Johnson. A history lovers delight.

This review is only about LBJs past in Johnson City and not his ranch about 15 miles away to the west. There's a visitor's center operated by the National Park Service and many nice displays about the accomplishments of Lyndon Baines Johnson.

The ranger was helpful with directions and scheduling to see both the sites in Johnson City and the Ranch at the State Park (14 miles west). We didn't have time to view the films (25 minutes each, one for LBJ and one for Lady Bird), but we may get back again.

We are NPS junkies and Presidential history "geeks" and this experience was one of the best we've had. The park, ranch, exhibits, buildings and staff were incredible! We learned so much about this significant President, and were so impressed that he was so committed to his Texas roots. Thank you for providing this site and for maintaining the integrity of...

To begin with, the natural setting is gorgeous; rolling hills along a river with ancient live oak trees. And it is actually a working ranch! Descendants of LBJ's prize Herefords roam the grounds. At the show barn, there is a ranch hand who is clearly passionately devoted to the place and full of wonderful observations. A ranger gave us a... More

This historic ranch and its beautiful cattle are well taken care of. The grounds are immaculately maintained. Its just lovely and peaceful out there. The Cattle are beautiful and healthy and direct descendants of the original herd that President Johnson had. Today we got to see and pet the new twin calves that were born about 7 weeks ago...twins are... More

We loved this park. Saw both the LBJ and Lady Bird movies (30 mins ea) and learned even more about both the amazing historical figures in US history.

Friendly staff! Plenty to see even if you opt out of the tour. As you drive the grounds be sure to get out at the barn for the kids. They can practice their roping skills, check out brands, saddles, and cows. When at the house/hanger check out the plane and old cars. Don't forget the junior ranger book and badge... More
