This is a great experience if you enjoy TX history. It has a lot if unique artifacts and an extensive collection of firearms. The kids might get a little bored as its mainly ideal for an older crowd who knows and appreciates what their looking at.

If you are a Rangers fanatic or work in law enforcement, the high admission price will be worth it. There are so many artifacts that it will take hours to see everything. For one with only a casual interest, like myself, it was a bit too much. However, it was still interesting, and I enjoyed a very small display relating... More

There is a photo op where you (or kids) can put on costume pieces , stand in front of a mural, and take your own picture. The informative film lasts 45 minutes. The gift shop has good postcards and other gift items, including... More

Nice place to visit for an hour. For the most part this is a gun exhibit with some history thrown in. I enjoyed it but my wife checked out after five minutes. If you like guns this is a great attraction and the history of the Texas Rangers is very educational.

Expectations. I have had the privilege of visiting quite a few museums in the United States and abroad; I enjoy military museums of any size/type but especially appreciate museums like this with large collections of well-cared-for antique weapons. I can attest to the high quality of the exhibits in this museum - they are very extensive and detailed. Anyone interested... More

This visit was recommended by a family member who was brought up in Waco. The exhibits are fascinating with the opportunity yo see every type of gun imaginable and some good antique weapons. I especially enjoyed the Boney and Clyde exhibits and there was a 45 minute film shown in the theatre which was both interesting and informative. The museum... More

This is one of my favorite museums. I've been here several times and never get tired of it. I've taken several friends here and they are impressed. Being a history buff, this is a place I could easily spend a whole day in!

Traveling North or South on I-35 in Texas ???? You'd be missing a true Texan treat for yourself and/or your family , if you did not exit at 335-B to see this magnificent collection ! Not only will you see a vast collection of guns , but a well produced & informative video about the history of the Texas Rangers... More
