You can see the statue from several miles away when traveling north from Houston, and while there are 'No Parking' signs all along the interstate, there are always several cars that apparently have exemptions from such things. Those who stop on the interstate miss the best parts of the park! There are several exhibits outside, as well as a nice... More

The statue of Sam Houston on I-45 just celebrated 20 years! It's definitely worth making a stop at the statue and visitor's center to see the statue up close and personal and to view photos of it's construction and installation. There's a small gift shop that is a fun place to see.

It was a nice break in our travels to stop and visit the statue. The visitor center was nice, had brochures of what to do in the area as well as a souvenir shop. The photo opportunities were nice too. We left with some nice and unique pictures.

It really is a neat statue for a great man in Texas History. You don't even have to stop if you don;t want to, it is right off of I-45 and you can see him clearly in both directions. But you can go see it up close and take pictures too.

This is so cool. The statue is "Ginormous" Great to just get off the road and stretch your legs and learn a little about Houston history. Don't forget to sign the guest book!!

Quite a pretentious statue. Had driven by it before but never stopped and visited. Our group was afforded a wine and cheese reception in the statue. FUN

We stopped in to visit Sam Houston on our way home! The visitors center here is well stocked with information about the area and they're very friendly. The gift shop ws fairly priced and had items for all ages! The statue in Huntsville is amazing and the area is clean and worth the stop!

We stopped here after seeing the 67-foot white statue off I-45. It's free to visit. The gift shop area is small and old, but cute and filled with lots of historical information. We learned a lot about the legacy Sam Houston left behind. Bathrooms are clean and well kept. Nice shaded path to walk down to get to the statue.

I can't say anything else. It's a huge statue. White color. I can't write 50 characters about this. Just a huge statue. You can see it from the highway
