Tour Highlights

Trace the history of the Johnson family in the area, beginning with the establishment of the ranch in the 1860s. You will also see several displays explaining life in the Hill Country and the cattle business. There's even a chuckwagon and longhorn cattle to view. The park exhibits two video presentations - one about the Johnson Administration and the other concerning Mrs. Johnson's life and achievements.

In addition to museum exhibits, you will see a working cattle ranch, true to how it existed in the 1860s. See a reconstruction of his birthplace that President Johnson personally oversaw. Exhibits explain how LBJ's political life affected the lives of his Hill Country neighbors. The ranch is also the site of the former President's final resting place.

In the spring, behold the beauty of Texas wildflowers, a longtime project of Mrs. Johnson's. Come along and enjoy the culture, beauty and history of this unique area. The exhibits and history of the ranch give visitors a thorough look at life of an American president.

The tour continues along scenic Hill Country backroads to the charming German community of Fredericksburg, once the edge of the frontier and home to brave German pioneers, beginning in the mid-1800s. Lunch is on your own at one of the many fine restaurants in Fredericksburg, many of which feature authentic German culinary specialties. You will have the opportunity to enjoy shopping and browsing in the quaint antique shops and gift boutiques along the Hauptstrasse (Main Street). There will be time to explore the Admiral Nimitz Museum and Historic Center (admission fee not included), as well as the History Walk of the Pacific War and the Japanese Garden of Peace.
