We spent about 2 hours at the museum, and enjoyed our visit. As a retired law enforcement officer, my husband enjoyed the displays of firearms and the historical accounts of some of the most famous Rangers. Interesting array of personal firearms, ornately engraved. There is a theater showing a movie about Texas Ranger history. We enjoyed visiting the gift shop... More

It was a nicely done museum with lots of displays and interesting history. I would recommend this museum to my friends. We spent a few hours there.

Full of detail about the famed military-turned-police force. Perhaps more detail than the average tourist would appreciate, but still worth an hour or so of your time.

Sort of neat. A bit boring and redundant. Bonnie and Clyde exhibit interesting. It is indeed a hall of fame, not a museum experience. It is a law enforcement homage and a bit dry. It could be made more interesting with modernization andinteractive displays. The history is important, the collection impressive but the presentation a little weak. Way too many... More

My husband and son visited the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum and really enjoyed it. They especially liked all the guns. My 13 year old son enjoyed the exhibit where he assembled a gun. They found the exhibits to be very interesting.

This little jewel is from a foundation that compiled all of the various histories about the inception of Texas, and the Texas Rangers, evolving then into DPS, and other agencies. This includes a social history that is clearly compiled by those invested in telling the "good and gritty" side to the Texas Rangers, with glaring gaps for historians, but for... More

I visited the Texas Ranger Museum in Waco recently and I was not disappointed. It is a rich history of not only the Texas Rangers, but the State itself. Texas would not be Texas without the sacrifices of it's lawmen. The museum contains weapons, clothing, articles and photographs of famous Texas law men.

I love this museum. A lot of hands on plus exhibits of all the notorious cases and the heroic rangers we have all read about! Even a tribute to Chuck Norris and his character Walker, which he honored the name of one of the earliest and infamous of the rangers. .

My son's 4th grade class had the opportunity to visit the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame Museum this past week and I was lucky enough to be a parent chaperone. It had been years since I had visited this place. The outside looked liked I remembered but the inside looked transformed. There are tons of guns and tons of stories... More
