Our family loves this museum! We go once a year to visit it. It never gets old! Great historical pieces with excellent write-ups. A great school field trip or family field trip. Highly recommended for old and young alike.

This is a fun little two-level museum if you're a Texas history buff. It was arranged logically and sufficiently and covered all the relevant historical eras. The exhibits and displays were what you expect when you go to a museum. It really would be more exciting for people who already have an interest in pioneer history or Texas history. There's... More

Learn about the history of the republic of Texas. From the original Native American inhabitants to the fight for independence from Mexico. They also have a lot of information on what life was like in the 1800, such as carpentry equipment, medical instruments and such. It really is worth the time.

This museum is perfect. Everything about it is wonderful. It's quiet and well laid out, and the kids found it interesting and fun, not stuffy and boring. We didn't have much time since we arrived late in the afternoon, so I know there are probably a lot of things we missed, but we did enjoy everything we saw. The staff... More

This is a very informative history of our Texas past with nice displays that are easy to read. I especially liked the timeline on the wall by the ramp that leads to more displays upstairs. It really puts the past in perspective. We did not watch the 20 minute move so will have to go back to do that.

If you are looking for a quiet place to learn the history of our Texas settlers, this the the best place ever. The displays are incredible and the folks who operate the museum are so nice. Come and enjoy the day. Talk a walk in the beautiful grounds.

Take a step back in time when Texas was it's own free country. This place was amazing. Go during the Texas Birthday Celebration and there will be story tellers ans a huge Texas cake.

Nice museum which traces the founding of the state of Texas. It has a thorough collection of artifacts and the way things were back in the 1830s and 1840s. Maybe a little pricey and sad that there was no educator discount. The movie was a bit boring unfortunately as well...
