“All the way with LBJ!”

Lyndon B. Johnson National Historical Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We started the tour in Johnson City at the museum and the boyhood home. Museum is small, but pack a lot of information into its displays; the home is one block away and the tours start every half hour. Its a typical turn of the century furnished house, with some stories to go along. Next stop was the ranch 15 miles west of town, started the tour at the schoolhouse, then the birth home, then circled the ranch to the "hanger" which is a display and where you pay to tour the "Texas White House". The house is very 1960ish in its furnishings and decor (which doesn't seem all that old to me, but I'm in my 50's); still its interesting. historic, and very much worth seeing. It was a 100 degree day, so we didn't walk the grounds much, but it seem liked it would be a good thing to do on a spring or autumn day. All in all pretty good, but you leave wishing there was a little more to do or see after driving all the way out there. The staff was nice and friendly even though you know they've seen and said it all before. I recommend it.

Liked everything, very informative. LBJ didn't go very far, he was born, schooled, lived, died and is resting all in the same place.

Toured the LBJ Ranch or Western White House while LBJ was in office. Ranch home was more modest that I would have expected. Learning about the history and seeing how business was conducted by LBJ was very interesting. His need to have a telephone at hand was very evident during the ranger conducted tour.

Famous LBJ cars ( one being a car-boat) and one of his United States of America planes were on site.

Park is a state and federal site. State has small fee while the federal section is free.

A cd can be purchased to help with the driving tour of the ranch.

LBJ Park is in a run down small town, Johnson City. The park itself is educational. The 30 minute film on LBJ was interesting. The stroll around the grounds was just right for any age.. The highlight was the Texas Longhorn. Only viewed his house from the outside, since there wasn't a tour when we got there. It is worth seeing if it is on your way to someplace else. We drove an hour and a half to see it and that I wouldn't do again.

I really enjoyed this experience. The video in the visitors ceter was an informative start. Next we took the drive around the LBJ property. It was beautiful. along the way, we stopped in for a look at LBJ's school. We finished up with a guided tour of the President's home. Our guide was excellent and the tour was very interesting. All this for $3.00. What a bargain!
