Lots of history about the Texas Rangers. Lots of guns they used and criminals used. Other interesting facts as well. If you love Texas history or police/military history, this is a great place to visit.

This museum was chock full of Ranger memorabilia including lots of guns. History of the rangers was broken down by the years. A 40 minute film was shown which was worth viewing.

Did not see signs regarding pets. If you have a service dog there are most likely no restrictions. Other wise call the museum to ask.
