  • Our family visits Washington-on-the-Brazos once a year. Great site with great history museums, living farm and gift shop. The gift shop has some great Texas History books. 
  • We recently stopped here during a family road trip. There is a fantastic museum (The Star Of The Republic) on the site. Independence Hall is a small wooden building - a recreation of the original. On the third Saturday of each month, staff and volunteers dressed in period clothing and roll play as if they are the people and events of Old Washington. This is absolutely the best time to visit. Definitely bring a picnic lunch and walk down to the Brazos!
  • Very cool museum. The best time of the year to go is for Fourth of July! There's always a really nice firework show and events throughout the day
  • Nice destination for a quick weekend visit.
  • A great place to learn about Texas history in a beautiful location.
  • They had a husband and wife team of volunteers during our visit. She guided tours of the reconstructed building where Texas declared its independence and he toured us around the home/farm that once belonged to the last President of the Republic of Texas. They were both engaging, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We were both very impressed. Very few visitors that day.
