I have been here several times but this time will took our 10 year old grandson. He was amazed at the dirt floors and the way people once lived. He has always been interested in science but before we left he said Grandpa, I really think I like history. This is a good place to come and educate yourself &... More

Enjoy the well done work of the many who have put together this museum of old artifacts and memories of Texas. Take the kids, go any time but the best opportunities are when there are events there. It is a pleasure to be there, people are nice and the walk around is delightful.

You don't find better than this, in providing view to the old west and, in particular, history of settling and ranching life of Texas. What a great opportunity to stroll through history and get a feel for life as it was. Just an incredible museum, a best of America class.

My first time back here in several years. The visitor center has expanded and they now have descriptive signs at each building. Nice place to spend a couple hours and be amazed at how the early ranchers lived

This provides a nice stroll along easy walk pathways. You see old authentic houses and can tell how people lived back then. Great museum.

They offer an outside walking tour of Texas abodes from the early settler days up to 1907...We had a comfortable temperature day for the visit..windy though...But very well done and interesting. Inside is a great gift shop; art exhibits ; saddles, Texas oriented.

It describes the real cultural history of Texas. It's the best place to learn the history of Texas. To see and touch buildings that others walked in over two hundred years ago is amazing. I recommend it to anyone who is from another state or country.

Seems like an odd place at first, but what I found nice was how they basically walked you through the history of settling West Texas/ As you move along you start with the barest of bones prairie home, to a sod tri-level to help control the heat and cold,and then to more modern homes. It is not a huge attraction... More
