  • We enjoyed the park trails and visitor center very much. We missed the Barrington living history farm. Re-enactors in period costume work the farm crops and livestock giving visitors a sense of life.....  more »
  • We went through this museum and it took several hours. There were lots of exhibits referring to Texas Independence. The upper level had vignettes of living in the 1830 x 1850s which would be nice for....  more »
  • Great park and museum! This Is THE location where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed. The museum is very kid friendly and Barrington Living history Farm is a step back into the 1800’s.....  more »

  • The Birth Place of Texas, where Sam Huston worked hard to develop a Texas government & train men to fight. Wonderful place to bring kids & learn the fascinating history of Texas. You learn about "The Runaway Scrape". This is where Texas women & children led a decoy & crossed the Brazos river. The men went another direction, so Santa Anna had to slit his troops.
  • Always such a great place to visit. We went to Bark in the Park this past weekend for the second year in a row and it was fun! Hot but fun! The dogs and the kids both enjoyed it. Lots of fun vendors and presentations.
  • I enjoyed all of the history at this site. I was really surprised though not to see as much people there. Although it was a Wednesday, I half expected to see the parking lot pack since this is the place at Exit declaring its independence from Mexico it's an important site to Texas history and should be honored that way. I really enjoyed the volunteer tour and the amount of information that the park rangers gave to me.
  • This place has got to be one of the best state parks in Texas...It had a lot of real life things that other plantations or parks do not have. From smoking fresh meat in smokehouse to real live animals..and the employee's were fantastic.. would highly recommend this park..
  • Nice little place to spend maybe half a day. The visitor center is free, and has a gift shop in it. Great place if you're interested in Texas history. Nice little trail. Museum will cost you $5. If you do the museum and the farm you can do it for $9.
