  • This museum is located on the campus of Sul Ross and is free to the public. Good combination of history and info on geography/sights. There is a nice gift shop of tasteful items. Recommend if you have...  more »
  • Located on the SRSU campus, the admission is free, the exhibits aren't grandiose (you're crazy if you think you'll find a Smithsonian-y museum in a town like Alpine), but it's not bad for a city that ...  more »

  • (Warning: young adults from Central Florida in for vacation) After a great week at BBNP, we entered a rainy weekend in Alpine. The Museum was INDOORS, NEARBY, AND FREE (donations welcome)… yet it FAR EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS of just another way to escape the rain. The museum itself is probably just a little larger than a three-bedroom home yet somehow SO MANY EXHIBITS COVERING A VAST AMOUNT OF TOPICS ARE DISPLAYED- and very organized as well. We saw fossils found around the parks, the history of its geographical formations, historic sites around Alpine, typical goods for sale from stores long ago… the accompanying signs were very informative and there are MANY VISUALS TO CAPTIVATE CHILDREN.
  • AMAZING PLACE TO GO AND VISIT! Great staff also!
  • The museum is small, but the information contained within it is extensive. Things ranging from wildlife, fossils, human exploration, military conflicts and more.
  • If you are an Old West enthusiast, this museum is worth a trip across country. There is always something new to see and learn in the museum. At the very least, follow them on Facebook for a frequent peek at items in their collection. A nice Web presence for teachers to use.
  • Nice stop and look museum.
