There is a lovely gift shop and information center here at the statue. There are pictures of the construction of the statue, Sam Houston related gifts and souvenirs and clean bathrooms if you stop along your way. There is no fee to enter or explore the grounds. But please DO NOT PARK ON INTERSTATE 45 TO VIEW THE STATUE! There... More

Enjoyed the 30 minute stop, walking around, looking at the statute. The gift shop has a nice variety of items, including ice cream, which our group loved. The employees/volunteers were helpful and friendly. The grounds were maintained and safe.

We stopped by here on our way home from Galveston. I'm so glad we did. Nice little outdoor area, with a cute gift shop and interesting little information area. The statue is amazing. If you're visiting Texas, or if you're a native you need to add this to your list.

This is a nice diversion if you are driving on I-45. It takes 15 minutes to tour the place, longer if you'd like to visit the gift shop. What made the visit so good, was the storytelling by the extremely informative docent who was staffing the information desk. The 77-foot tall statue along I-45 is a tribute to the man/men... More

Nothing to do here but see a stature of a dude that didn't like taxes. THere is a small gift shop, but who cares. Keep driving.

A grand statue it is, but I would not take the time to visit it in the park. It is visible from I45 driving to Huntsville from Houston and Conroe. You can even stop along the shoulder of the road for a photo, but I would not recommend it. I'm not sure if there is a fee to enter the... More

This is a good stop to stretch your legs and see something BIG. We love all things TEXAS, so this was just one more thing to see.

Another short, but very interesting stop on the way through Huntsville. There is a beautiful little visitors' center and gift shop, with a short trail through a nice wooded area to see the statue. Well worth taking a few minutes out if your day.
