  • The Judge Roy Bean museum is a real gem. It’s small and takes as much time as you want to take to enjoy some history of the area. This is a very well taken care of facility and definitely worth the st...  more »
  • Was on a motorcycle/camping trip recently with several buddies to Davis Mountains. Made a stop & toured the Museum. Museum host were very informative. A great look back in history  more »

  • The Roy Bean Travel and Information Center is a bit off the main road, so don’t think you have made a wrong turn if you don’t see it right away. The sign on highway 90 is large and easy to see. I found the place to be very clean and the people who work there to be friendly and talkative. The dioramas which occupy the wall beyond the visitor center desk don’t all work and the audio isn’t well suited to people with hearing problems but that doesn’t really matter much. The real cool stuff is outside. The original (but restored) saloon and what Roy Bean called the “Opera House” sit on the property and the public can walk in. To the right of these buildings is an extensive desert plant garden. Many of these plants have been growing for decades. Back inside you can sit for a short video played on a large screen T.V. The film looks like it was made in the early 70’s but it still has pertinent information.
  • If you're driving out to Big Bend and find yourself passing through Langtry, then definitely stop here. One of the coolest places in Texas!
  • This is a neat little place to stop at if you enjoy a little bit of good ol' Texas history! Not to mention its completely free!
  • Cool historical stop on the wayside! Neat presentation and displays!
  • Very helpful definitely worth the stop..
