Frontier Texas brings the frontier to life and lets visitors meet people who played out their lives on the Texas frontier. Frontier Texas also serves as the official visitor center for Abilene and the Texas Forts Trail Region. NEW EXHIBITS ARE NOW OPEN! "Blood & Treasure on the Frontier" features a new high definition, surround-sound welcome theater. The new "Early Texas" exhibit area showcases the natural history of the region including artifacts, interactive discovery stations and beautiful large murals by local artist HC Zachry and much more.
This museum is very informative about the history of Abilene and Texas! It was recently remodeled as well, and it looks great!
Such a wonderful history museum! We leaved so much I never knew, or just had forgotten since childhood history. This museum shows you what it was like to live back in the days of natives & outlaws & roaming Buffalo. So educational and great interactive learning in some spots with the holographic videos of people's stories that lived during that time. It was $14 for 2 veterans in February of 2022 with our military/veteran discount. Not being from Texas, I loved learning the history of the area during the frontier days.
We highly recommend coming here. You learn a lot about Texas and the area. There are short movies, touch screens and well thought out displays.
This is a great place to bring children. The cost is minimal.
Fascinating place. Great info and top notch displays. A must-do
Kid had a lot of fun playing on the buffalo skull and shopping in the gift shop! Great place for a rest stop!
Ever wondered what it was like to live in the Wild West? Apparently it wasn't all drinking whiskey while watching can-can dancers and gunfights in the street all the time-- living in Texas in the 19th century was hard work, and you'll learn all about it here at this interactive, hands-on museum.
