  • Beautiful place with an ethereal sort of vibe. Love love love!!
  • Excellent representation of Houston's history told through the medium of historic structures that depict how Houstonians lived during different eras. Our guide was a blast.
  • Amazing local history! You will not be disappointed when coming to visit this historical center.
  • Well nice people and good to know about history, except, it's not real. The houses have been moved from other locations and it have been modified.
