Really great museum about a wonderful war hero!

This is truly a very neat museum. It's not overly big, but has some great memorabilia in it. Take the time and go check it out!

I have just read three reviews on this site and it is difficult to add very much more as they were all very good reviews. This museum is actually two museums in one. Audie Murphy was the most decorated of the many brave men who answered the call in WW ll. Audie was born and raised in Hunt Country Texas... More

When we saw the size of the building we thought we'd be there just a short time. Instead we stayed almost three hours. The first part of the museum explains the cotton growing in the local area, especially as it was in the past. They have a number of actual implements that were used and some scale models showed how... More

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

It was really great to see and here of the amazing things that Audie Murphy did before his plane crash. Did not know he was married twice or that he wrote 17 country hits. Great collection of guns from historic past. When we came through in July the Family had sent additionally memorbila there for the fans. Reviewing the Cotton... 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.
