  • The San Houston Museum is so beautiful and cohesive as a museum. Most locals think it is literally just a park. There are three historical building of Sam Houston and Texas. The staff get in character and dress in period clothes of 1860. Great for the whole family. I had my wedding here
  • 30th Annual Folklife Festival - Enjoyed a fun variety of live entertainment and cultural activities for every family member. The Sam Houston Memorial Museum’s fifteen-acre grounds was transformed from a peaceful setting into a bustling frontier settlement where you can watch historical reenactments, listen to music, shop for crafts, wares, and food, or simply stroll the same land where Sam and Margaret Houston lived and where their children played.
  • A small but focused historical museum. If you like Texas history, you will enjoy this museum. It tells Sam Houston's life story and about 1/3 of the museum is dedicated to the Texas Revolution. If you take your time and read most of the exhibits, you'll probably complete it in 30-45 minutes. The volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable. They have plenty of stories and artifacts for kids to pick up and examine, like musket balls and old playing cards. Don't forget to go downstairs and see the diorama of the battle at the Alamo. Then enjoy the park the museum sits in.
  • Much more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.
  • Very interesting if you're into Texas history. Lots of exhibits to look with some cool artifacts.
