If you were ever a Scout you should visit it before it closes and moves. They have exhibits that take you back to your scouting days. Take a tour as it will not be here long.

Made a trip to the Dallas area because this museum is/was closing after Labor Day weekend 2017. Last visit here was in 2003. I remembered it great. It was located next to the Boy Scout headquarters in an industrial park. Nice Norman Rockwell/Joseph Csatari gallery....More

Having 3 Eagle Scouts, this was a real treat. The interactive museum was enjoyable for all (although cub scouts would find it more their style). Good history lesson of this amazing organization. FYI - IT IS RELOCATING TO NEW MEXICO JUNE 2017.

Was really impressed with this museum. Heard, unfortunately, that it's relocating. Excellent exhibits and some great hands on stuff for kids (especially boys of scouting age). Nice work BSA!
