  • When you enter this home you can feel the warmth and the love of the Johnson Family. It was i teresting learning and seeing how they lived. 
  • This tour was fun and interesting. Great tour of the inside of the house LBJ lived in. Remodeled to when he was President except his wife's room. Nice trip back in time. 
  • Was great to see what the house looked like back when LBJ was president. From what we learned they transformed the house back to it's 1960's look after Lady Bird Johnson passed away. Seeing how he kep...  read more »
  • I didn't visit the house, only the ranch and it was very interesting to me to discover how L.B. Johnson, used to live. Not because it's a President, but because I didn't know anything about ranches and life in Texas in the early 20th. To visit the ranch, you just drive though it on a well signed path. You see the old school, the grand-parents house, ,etc...Even the cows ! It's really nice and peaceful. Then I went to the old maid farm next to the ranch. It stayed like it was and is still in fantastic shape. There we saw a herd of does and that was perfect to conclude the day !
  • The LBJ Ranch tour is really educational and the park rangers did a great job at telling the history of the "Texas White House". The park is really well maintained even for a region going through a major drought. The whole experience is really laid back and I enjoyed my time there. I would recommend to my friends and family.
  • Visiting LBJ Ranch was educational, but also a pleasure. Approximately an hour and a half west of Austin, the ranch is open during the day for a free ~30 minute drive-through, with scattered historic stops and markers. At the end of the loop, you end up at LBJ's hanger, with "Air Force One-Half," and his house, the "Texas White House." A tour of the first floor of the latter costs only $3 and provides a valuable look into LBJ's and Lady Bird's personal living and working spaces. Definitely worth the drive, especially if you combine it with stops at Enchanted Rock or Fredericksburg.
  • Well worth the visit. The staff is very friendly. It would cost you $3/adult to take the "White House" tour (kids are free). No hurry - no big crowds - mostly peaceful. Great 1900s working farm. A few hours well spent.
  • The whole complex is very interesting, but surprisingly the Johnson ranch house is not as intriguing as the living history farm because of the charming and informative ladies who staff the farmhouse. Still, the park rangers who lead the tours through the house and who work in the museums make the visit interesting and worthwhile.
