Stop at the visitors centre to view this magnificent statue up close. The visitors centre has a washroom and shop and is quaint with a short trailing path to the statue. Well worth a 10 min stop.

Family fun, history, friendly people. Great for taking photographs. We had a 12 year old with us and she was spellbound and lived taking a picture in front of Sam

Quick stop for a little history lesson on one of the founding fathers of Texas. Beware of the gift shop. They wanted $16.95 for a small sticker. Also, the bathroom was not pleasant at all. Needs a little work. The statue was definitely worth seeing.

Neat statue to commemorate Texas' founding father, but not really worth stopping, unless you just want a quick look around and cute souvenirs. There was a short walking trail and a plaque. To me it would be much better to go see the larger museum in town across from Sam Houston State Universiry.

We stopped after going to Huntsville State Park. Nice and friendly people. The gift shop is a bit expensive, compared to others we have shopped. Great photo ops.
