  • Very very informative and enlightening to view all of the historical items located in the museum. The town of Gonzales has a lot of history to offer anyone who wishes to visit. And viewing the 90-plus different turn-of-the-century homes was amazing. It was a wonderful day we had there. Plus check out the amazing BBQ in Luling, TX just about 15-20 minutes away. YUM
  • This museum is definitely worth a stop, especially if you are interested in Texas history. The crown jewel of the museum is the come and take it cannon. The story behind how it was found was quite interesting, so be sure to ask. The museum also features local history of the county. They also have a penny squisher if you collect those. A great place to spend an hour.
  • Rather small and not much to see but you could swing by the old jail house, that was kind of cool and together make for an interesting afternoon. I also tried exploring the town but didn't see much else. :/
  • This is a really nice free museum. Its claim to fame is the come and get it cannon. The gentleman in charge of the museum told is a very interesting story about how it was found, after being lost for many years. This is definitely worth a stop if you love Texas history and are in the area.
  • Great little museum full of local and Texas Independence History! Highly recommend and be sure and give them a visit! Friendly staff! Highly Recommend, Give them a visit!
