The museum began with the story of cotton crops in Greenville. It was quite interesting to see the process that cotton goes through from harvesting to clothing. Past the cotton display was the Hall of Fame that depicted the life of Audie Leon Murphy. There was also tribute to all the men and women who have served in the military... More

This museum is very well done. We learned a lot about the cotton trade in Texas. We really enjoyed the Audie Murphy memorabilia also.We saw the the signs by chance as we were traveling thru Greenville. It was worth the time and the $6.00!

We enjoyed this small museum very much. The cotton information was an added bonus as we came to visit Audie. He has an amazing story that I certainly did not know. He deserves our attention. I do encourage everyone to support this museum. I will mention that the historical markers on highway 69 could be improved. Very hard to stop... More

My husband and I visited the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum and really enjoyed our visit. The first part of the museum covers the cotton industry of north-east Texas. Picking cotton was a part of young Audie's life, as well as a significant part of life in this region of the state, so this area of the museum was more interesting... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. The staff was awesome and enthusiastic and engaging. After seeing the large WWII museum in New Orleans, I of course had adjusted my expectations accordingly. But there were many parts of this small museum that I enjoyed so much more. They have done a tremendous job with displays and information. It was an hour and... More

The museum is well laid out and has many interesting exhibits. My son my grand-kids enjoyed the visit. Both parts (Audie Murphy / Cotton) were interesting.

This museum is wonderful. Audie Murphy was the most decorated soldier in WW2 and also Greenville at one time had the largest inland cotton warehouses in the world and there are many submissions of Hunt County.

The Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum is just off Interstate 30 in Greenville. Very easy to get to and from. We saw the sign for it as we were heading towards Arlington and decided to stop by as we were heading back. As a fan of war movies, westerns, and former military, I am a big fan of Audie Murphy and... More

Wonderful museum about Medal of Honor winner Audie Murphy and much more. Includes rotating exhibits on local heroes, along with Murphy and Cotton. The veterans memorial and statue of Murphy in front are wonderful. I have visited it 5 times or more and it never gets old.
