This museum provides an excellent perspective on the, primarily, men who helped shape this State and take on a high-risk duties to benefit the safety of others. A great reminder of what law enforcement and peace officers do for us gladly every day.

I convinced my partner to stop at the museum in Waco as we were travelling between Austin and Dallas. I wish I saw earlier that Dr Pepper museum was also in Waco, despite not wanting a free drink (unlike Dublin where my partner got a free beer at Guinness museum) - so don't forget to visit this in Waco.

Not being from the US I don't have much history of the Texas Rangers except what has been shown on tv and the movies. This is a very interesting place to spend a couple of hours. It has some great items and the history is displayed in a very easy to read manner. There are lots of guns on display.... More

There are many interesting exhibits and artifacts in this museum. Depictions of the leadership and history of the Texas Rangers are everywhere. I was fascinated to learn that the organization started out as a means to stop across the border incursions and Indian attacks but later evolved into a law enforcement role. On display are uniforms and badges worn by... More

The exhibits were interesting. Both 17 and 8 year olds found things that they enjoyed learning about. The gift shop is way over priced for things you can find at any box store. The items marked with the museum name were also a bit spendy, but more acceptable being location specific. If you don't have children who NEED souvenirs from... More

For those young and younger and youngest - what a way to discover the history of what the rangers are about with so many displayed artifacts behind scenes of legendary men and women. While you can go for a picnic looking over the Brazos River. Wonderful experience.

This museum has lots of things to see from the Texas Rangers. Lots of guns, exhibits and a video to watch as you tour through the facility. You can go at your own pace to look.

It seems like when anyone comes to visit, this is the place we take them to......and we don't get tired of it! Even after three times, we still see things we may have missed. If you are in Waco....this is definite place to visit!

If you want to know what and who the Texas Rangers were, this is the place to go. My wife was able to look up her great, great grandfather and they mailed her copies of all the documents the had on him. Lot's of firearm history too.

Great little find in Waco. Enjoyed learning the history and background of the Texas Rangers. Displays show a wealth of information and background from uniforms, firearms and even job duties. Not only does the museum embrace the history and show respect but also enjoys the light side of things and includes the Hollywood depictions of the Rangers. Grounds of the... More
