  • We had our Holiday Party at the Texas Military Forces Museum. I believe we were in the great hall with all the various military vehicles from the past. We were able to tour the museum at any time duri...  more »
  • Free museum and well done. It is a lot larger than you think it is. It has many large displays. It also has a ton of content to read. I found the 9/11 area extremely interesting. You do need a photo I...  more »
  • I have taken my grandchildren several time. They are able to climb in the airplanes and tanks. They also periodically do war re-enactments which allows the children to see history in action. The staff...  more »

  • An interesting and richly stocked military museum. A lot of textual explanations, that could possibly be made more concise, and/or provide additional context. The historical perspective is very military and local-patriotic, but that is what I expected, so I was not disappointed by the lack of a more critical perspective. The museum is significantly larger than it seems when you first step in, and a curious adult can spend several hours exploring all of the exhibits.
  • Amazing museum. Interesting exhibits. Outstanding staff formed by veterans. Keep in mind, it is inside military base. Outside you can find big heavy vehicles. My whole family enjoyed.
  • A walk through time of Texas' history adorned eith war memorabilia teeming with history and stories from the past. From the early days of Texas through the World Wars and beyond, the museum does a great job of describing events in detail and painting a picture of life during these times. As someone from the Northeast, some of the language regarding the civil war can seem to have a bias toward the South, but that makes sense given that it is in Texas.
  • What a great place! We were there for almost 2 hours. There is so many interesting things to look at, and the staff were amazing!
  • Great place to visit. Lots to see and very well looked after. Very friendly and knowledgeable.
