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.

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.
