We had several ancestors who were Texas Rangers. This is a beautiful facility, and such a tribute to the Rangers who helped make Texas great. We take all our guests to the museum.

This really made you think about the history of the west and of the hardships people had to overcome. The displays were well organised, with a wealth of information. Well stocked gift shop too.

Nothing memorable here, but worth a stop for a sketchy, and heroic, overview of the history of Texas Rangers.

If you can only visit one place in Waco, this is the one! The collection of art, artifacts, guns, boots, information... it's all amazing. You will need a minimum of 3 hours to have a veritable experience of what the Texas Rangers are all about. I especially enjoyed the art work, so much color, different painters, different techniques, always maintaining... More

The only thing that would have made me enjoy this more would be if I could spend two days here. If you are at all interested in Texas history, the Texas Rangers (not the baseball team) or firearms, this museum is for you. It might be a bit hard to find as we just stumbled on it while taking a... More

We went here for my sons 19th Birthday. We were on a road trip. This is a wonderful museum. They had a short film about the Texas Rangers that was very informative.

We went there on our way out of town and boy is it really a cool piece of Texas History. Little kids might struggle because the exhibits are so detailed and have some may narratives, but if you're a history buff it's a must see.

Great museum! This place is next to the Visitor's Center, and you can stop by to get a $1 discount for each person for the museum. This museum is great for young and old alike. When you get in, there is a 45 minute film about the Texas Rangers and the history of their role in Texas. The film is... More
