  • Small, free museum. I wish the grounds had been better kept over the years.
  • Where else are you going to see the Come and Take it Cannons? Friendly staff, interesting artifacts. Exhibits a bit dated.
  • Brush up on Texas history. There's a lot to learn here.
  • Great museum! Definitely worth the trip - critical to Texas history and includes the original cannon. Free admission is an extra bonus!
  • Nice local memorial. Gonzales worth the trip, it is a lovely little town!
