  • One of my favorite museums. The atmosphere is great, and is a wonderful place to learn about the different ethnic groups in Texas. Also, make sure to come out to the Asian New Year Festival in February and the Texas Folklife Festival in June!
  • This place is great. There is a lot of reading to do so democraps might have a problem here but the historical information is amazing. Settlers of Texas came from so many nations. They badly wanted to become Texans, or Americans later on, and they never forgot their cultural history but they also assimilated and became proud citizens. They didn't come here illegally, refuse to learn the language here, and then fly their flag above the Texas and USA flag. These immigrants sacrificed so much and they really built America. This museum has so many personal stories from immigrants that moved here. The Indians and Texas weather gave them hell but they persevered and many made something of themselves. Remember the difference between legal and illegal immigrants. One assimilates, contributes, and genuinely want to be Americans. The other spits on the American flag, leeches off our welfare, education, and health system and doing all this while demanding interpreters.
  • The place is great! I went during the folklife festival. The organizers did a great job however, Muslim/Turkish stuff isn't part of Texas. They have Lebanese things, which is fine. They weren't muslims. This place has been trying to shove islam down ppl's throat. Previously, they had an exhibition about Muslims in Texas. Fort Hood is a good example.
  • Beautiful place that exhibits all of the cultures within Texas, with plenty of helpful staff and many demonstrations to watch. A great place to take the family, especially during the Texas Folk Life Festival.
  • Amazing, Sundays are free. Very well designed and very informative. I was very impressed, nice way to spend an afternoon.
