  • 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.
  • Very interesting if you're into Texas history. Lots of exhibits to look with some cool artifacts.
  • Very enjoyable and nice town to visit.
  • Great museum and amazing staff! :)
  • Unique.
