This is truly an historical museum depicting the service and sacrifice of the American soldier. Tickets prices are reasonable; only $5 the last time I visit. If you are looking for a unique museum rich in history check out the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum.

This was an interesting museum which gives an overview of the role of the Buffalo Soldiers in American history. This is a really interesting subject and certainly deserves a museum, and it is very appropriate to have it in Houston. While the artefacts that are there are well-displayed, it would have been nice to have had a bit more information... More

We have, in the past, seen some documentaries on Public Television stations and maybe 60 Minutes about the importance of the Buffalo Soldiers in American History. We did not know there was a museum connected to their stories. While in Houston, we visited the museum and felt very grateful for all they did and with the pride they had of... More

Little known, but should be better known. Extremely informative and full of good anecdotes and information about veterans and in particular African-American veterans.

I first visited this museum when it was in a house on Southmore with my dad and step-mom and went back recently with a friend visiting from out-of-town. The museum has relocated to a new and bigger facility with more extensive exhibits and within the museum district. One can learn about the contributions of African Americans, and the roles they...

The Buffalo Soldiers National Museum offers a great insight inthe Yankee Soldiers time. Uniforms colts and historical items cabn be seen. Even a french Helmet is exposed among American flags and paintings. A beautiful wooden Buffalo sculpture for a very little price. Simplicity and very warm Welcome was offered. Do not expect Guggenheim style as museum and you will be... More

I visited this museum with my husband and some new friends. As it turned out the curator and my husband are frat brothers. We were so overwhelmed by all the history contained in this museum. The one soldier play was so real and it really helped to drive home how important the buffalo soldiers were in the history of this... More

While in Houston on business travel, we drove past this museum. My colleague, who has a master's degree in history, and I were excited to visit the museum. I am embarrassed to admit that, while familiar with the term Buffalo Soldier, I really didn't know anything about them. We only had 45 minutes to visit but we found the museum... More

I recently went to the Buffalo Soldier Museum with my son, we found it to be a very historical place. We got there in time for the reenactment of Tyrell Biggs, which was a great show by the actor. The artifacts and pictures there cover many years of American history about some of our forgotten soldiers who fought for this... More
