The statute of Sam Houston greets Interstate 45 travelers between Houston and Dallas twenty-four hours a day. I spectacular statue that dwarfs many of those in Washington DC. It has easy access off of the IH 45 corridor and you cannot beat the price (free!).

Nice place to take pics and learn about a piece of Texas history.Quiet and relaxing.... Our children like having their picture taken with statue and learning about the construction of it. We went away with a better understanding of who this man was and his importance to Texas.

We finally stopped by the big Sam statute on our trip there while we were visiting my daughter at college. The statue is impressive up close and from far away! Very neat landmark in Huntsville!

This statue sits along I-45. It is quite impressive and at night, it is very well lit and you can't miss it. I was surprised at its dimensions.

If you're in the area, it's worth a side trip to go see the statue. It's very impressive. There's a short wooded path to the statue with picnic tables if you wanted to have a picnic lunch. There's also a visitor's center there, but it was closed due to a recent storm and power outage.

Unfortunately 99.999% of visitors only see this statue from the highway. DO NOT PARK ON THE INTERSTATE. Take the next exit and park safely in the parking lot. Not only is it dangerous to park on the interstate, but you can be ticketed. Museum is interesting and the grounds around the statue are always nicely manicured. It's a great break... More

Its a huge monument right off the freeway. Its not easy to get to and you have to go stand out by the freeway to get a good picture, but its really an amazing place.

We have driven by Sam so many times.... He is impressive from the highway. This trip, our son needed a restroom, so we stopped in. I'm happy we did!

... and really cool. You can see this from I45 but it is worth the 15 minute detour. Recommend following thus with the Sam Houston Museum.

You need to stand by it to appreciate its true size, but a drive past it on the interstate would be enough.
