  • Very detailed and basic history facts about Texas the 20 minut film was very informative of many details of those events. The farm/park was also very interesting and how people lived in those years
  • Perhaps it is a bit far (1 Houston hra), but worth it. The Museum is very comprehensive and has very good collections.
