Nice peace of history to expose children to.

A great place to expose home schooled and schooled children to. A little Taste of our 36th presidents home and political life.

The visitors center offers a 25 min film that is narrated and at time also by President LBJ where he takes the viewer on a tour of the ranch and his memories of growing up in this home and on this property. Beautiful setting, gorgeous trees, Pedernales River filled with water and all well maintained.

Includes two films and a good visitor center up to National Park standards. Then, take a guided tour of the boyhood home. If time, walk the Johnson Settlement.

Guided tours every 30 minutes which are free. Home is restored to time President Johnson moved there at Age 4. Surprisingly large home for the era.

Be sure to include this site after you visit the ranch. It rounds out the whole experience. This is the boyhood home where you will see LBJ's bedroom, dining room, kitchen, porches, out house, etc.

The visitor's center staff was quite helpful and friendly. They pointed out the trail to the Johnson Settlement, which was the original tract of land (320 of which was donated to form the city of Johnson City) settle by the Johnsons (ancestors of LBJ, President Lyndon Johnson). There is a small museum, a gift shop, restrooms and a water bottle... More

I know very little about the former Prez. Having said that when I saw this was in the area of where I was I decided to stop by for a visit. There's plenty of parking at the Visitor Center. The girl working there was very helpful with info and directions (I believe her name was Charlotte.) I took a stroll... More

This is part of the LBJ ranch. I would suggest you visit after a tour of the White House as it will give a better insight.

Our National Park Service is doing an excellent job interpreting the life and times of LBJ as a young boy, young statesman and President of the U.S. This is probably the main attraction in Johnson City which was a small rural town when Johnson lived here. The Park Service maintains a very nice visitor center/gift shop. There is a large... More
