  • I enjoyed walking through the past and seeing all the memorabilia. All questions I asked were answered in a timely and concise manner. The historian is nice and friendly.
  • The museum was good with a lot on the history of the area. The pool outside the museum was very green and dirty. Not sure how often they clean it.
  • Decent Texas history museum with the Come and Take it Cannon. The reflecting pool has no water in it and is basically just an eyesore. The sidewalks and exterior placards under the trees could some TLC. Overall a nice museum to visit.
  • I'm a big Alamo buff. This was a fun place to visit. It is believed they have the Canon from the original, "Come and Take it" Staff was very helpful.
  • Nice place
