Lots of very interesting information! Beautiful guns and artifacts! Knowing how much guns are worth, I'm totally amazed of collection and the rarity of some of them! Will go back again!

I was weary about visiting this museum, but I am glad we did. We started the tour with the video which I recommend starting off with. It's a little long, but packed with interesting information. It was a little quiet in the museum....which is my only complaint. I feel some interactive exhibits would be great for the younger crowd to... More

Awesome, awesome, awesome! Full of displays of history of the Texas Rangers. Informative yet not boring. There is a visitor's center next door with gifts & souvenirs and staffed by very informative personnel.

This place gets one star simply because it was here that I witnessed the most brazen example of managerial incompetence and abysmal stupidity I've ever seen. The exhibits are nice and well done, now let me explain the poor review. The museum is located across the street from the new Baylor football stadium. I patronized the museum on the same... More

A buddy of mine at work told me about this place. I was not all that excited to see it but it was really cool! The Texas Rangers have not only been involved with things pertaining to Texas but national and world events and even world wars! Most everything is just displays. There are a few hands on, interactive items... More

Location right off the Baylor camppus so we gave it a try. I had a small discount coupon but it was still a bit pricey. I enjoyed it for a the first few minutes but guns only interest me for just so long. The grandsons really enjoyed it longer than I did. It is well done and full of history...I... More

This museum was of great interest to my husband. My daughter and I were interested enough, but it could not hold the attention of my eight-year-old son. His favorite parts were the display where he got to assemble and disassemble a gun, the dress-up area (a nice boon for kids), and the gift shop (the gift shop has some cool... More

If you are a gun person this is heaven for you. There must be thousands of different types of guns here. Hand to muskets to Tommy guns. Pictures of Rangers---currently 3 women. Well done displays of guns. Lots of info about importance of Rangers in the history of Texas.
