Went to this museum knowing very little about the Texas Rangers and learnt a lot. The video is excellent and there is so much information! The paintings of some of the rangers are brilliant. The gift shop is good and the restrooms the cleanest ever!!

Was here for a wedding reception (the happy couple were big sports fans). It was perfect for our group of about 60ish people. All guests got to walk through the museum for free and we ate in the foyer at tables. I was impressed.

Interesting history exhibits. Some hands-on for the kids and ex-kids. Do you know how heavy a Colt Repeating Pistol is? Lift it and feel its almost 5 pounds! I liked the forensics exhibit-past and present. Much of it is a memorial to the Rangers of the past. There is a 45 minute History Channel film filled with info and is... More

We recently visited for a second time, this time with family. As always, it's great to read all the history and learn more about the 'wild west' of Texas (My being from AZ, I've grown up with a fair share of wild west stories.) This time we watched the 30-minute video which tied up some loose ends, to include how... More

My husband was chomping at the bit to see this attraction, me not so much but I was wrong. I learned so much about Texas history and specifically the Texas Rangers and their place in law enforcement. It was only $6 for his ticket (senior) and $7 for mine, very affordable. We started out watching a film in the rotunda... More

Great museum. So much history I never knew. Tremendous artifacts although most from the 20th century. Really explains the role of the rangers thru history.

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
