Lots of history, pictures, and films about LBJ and Lady Bird. Don't miss the settlement walk. Rangers and volunteers are friendly and very knowledgable.

We hadn't planned to stop here but saw the sign on our way between Austin and Fredericksburg and decided to stop. Glad we did. Had a very knowledgeable guide. The tour is only $3 and kids were free. The property is very large and you drive between different areas. The actual Texas whitehouse tour was really interesting. So glad we stopped.

The LBJ National Historical Park consists of 2 venues, 14 miles apart. The Boyhood Home in Johnson City And the Texas White House in Stonewall. You must visit them both to capture the whole picture of who LBJ was. Tours of the Boyhood Home run on the hour and half hour from 9 am til 4:30 (no tours at noon and 12:30) and take 20 minutes. A fascinating view of LBJ'S childhood by well informed Interpretive Guides. The Visitor Center has a great timeline exhibit and 2 movies (both 30 minutes long) One on LBJ one on Lady Bird. If you only have time for one, see the Ladybird movie. Don't make the mistake of visiting the Stonewall location and skipping Johnson City, it would be a very incomplete experience.

Regardless how you feel about his politics, a visit to this place is quite interesting from a purely personal perspective. It's interesting to see how someone from a poor family rises to President of the United States. His mother valued education. LBJ became a teacher. That had enormous impact on his life and future policies.

See the historic homes of Johnson City, the visitor center and films, then then go to the Stonewall unit's "Texas White House" aka the LBJ Ranch. Tours of the boyhood home are free. Tours of the ranch house are $3/pp. Driving tour DVD & CD are for sale for $9.99 and include a free ranch tour.

No photos allowed inside the ranch house. It looks like it did in 1973. Amazing. I hadn't known JFK was to be a guest for a BBQ at the LBJ Ranch the day he was assassinated until I came here. Nice collection of antique cars. Herefords from the original bloodline still raised on the ranch (it's a working ranch, afterall).

Free junior ranger program for kids.

This was really interesting and I'm glad we visited.

You can tour his home and the ranch for $3. It's like stepping back in to the 1960s, and if you lived during that era it's really a blast. Very educational and worth the trip. Tip the tour guides. They only make $12.50 a day!
