The museum is small, but very nice and informative. There's a wonderful play toy train area for the younger kids. The bathrooms are clean and the place is nice. I wouldn't make a trip just for this museum, but if you are in the area, stop by here. It's free and 4 minutes from Ellen Trout Zoo.

A broad variety of photos and other sorts of historical information about the forestry industry in Texas. Sadly, the outdoors portion with heavy equipment was under redesign, so we could not take advantage of that part.
