Sam Houston's grave is easily accessed from the nearby curb, it is free and only takes a few minutes to view. Several historical markers provide some background and it is worth seeing and respecting.

It's a small museum of surprising quality, with amazing artifacts (Santa Anna's saddle comes to mind) in monied displays.

FYI people. The statue of Sam Houston and his graveside are not on the museum grounds. Still a must to see in Huntsville, Texas.

Sam Houston loved Texas. But he loved his family more. This park tells the story of the Houston family (who've been family friends of mine for nearly 50 years). I asked my wife to marry me at the steps of the Steamboat House.
