You are charged a $2 admission fee per person to tour this wonderfully grand little museum! There is a great amount of wonderfully conveyed history within this little building. There are a few rooms with artifacts from each period that give one a visual example of the times. This is a must see if you are interested in history.

This well organized museum shows some of Laredo's early history under 7 flags. Staged rooms gave you an idea of the lifestyle of the periods depicted. Good historical photos. Helpful and knowledgeable staff.

This tiny museum is a must see for anyone who wants to learn about Laredo, Tx. My son still loves to tell people that we have 7 flags - not 6 like the rest of Texas. The tour guide we had was dramatic and engaging for the children (we took a cub scout group).
