LBJ's birthplace, childhood home, and adult home and ranch are all part of the Park at various locations. Each is worth seeing and taking the tour. Fascinating President.

Very interesting and informative. There is a gift shop at the headquarters and after getting free permit for car you can walk over to village to see how things were do in the past. There is also an area to see two longhorn steer and deer. When I went by the deer were outside the enclosure walking around. The main... More

We are history buffs, so no matter what the real purpose of a trip is (in this case the Formula 1 race) we always try to fit in something "educational". This park is beautiful and very well managed. We were there on a quiet day so it was easy to stop at each building and wander about imagining what life... More

We so enjoyed everything in this National Park. The ranch was beautifully restored to reflect when LBJ lived there and used it as the White House. You will see his office, main living room, dining room, kitchen and bed rooms. On the other areas of the ranch you will see a school house where he went to school, where he... More

There are several parts to the LBJ Historical Parks. This location in Johnson City which is a childhood/ family home and the part in Stonewall a few miles away. That part is the actual LBJ ranch. At this part of your trip you will learn about the early life of LBJ and the family connections to the area.

We are so glad we visited this park. You get to drive through a large portion of LBJ's ranch, see his childhood home, visit his grave, and tour his "Texas White House". It's a must see if you are interested in presidential history.

Went here on a Saturday afternoon, and that was probably not the best day. It was fine to drive around and visit the old farm houses, but it was too many people to get into the actual home of LBJ. So we just enjoyed the park.

Much more interesting than we expected: from the boyhood home and drive through the estate with cattle, to the (small) Presidential plane and most of all the tour round the "Texas White House" where Johnson spent a third of the year when in office and where, finally, he died. Count the telephones. Johnson would have loved the digital age.

This was much more interesting than we expected. (Can't taste wine the whole weekend!) The park ranger made the tour delightful and informative. Don't miss the history Johnson's life in the National park building. Well worth the stop. Entrance to the park is not traditional as it is part of the town of Johnson City.

If you love history, this is a fun place to come. Not a lot 'to do', but the tour of the White House of Texas that was LBJ and Lady Bird's homestead is very interesting. The park rangers are very knowledgeable and have fun bits of history to share. I totally enjoyed it. A beautiful spot on the Pedernales River.... More
