Who does not know about the Texas Rangers? They are legendary, from TV, movies, books, and comics. The museum is a great way to find out more about them and not just the media hype. The exhibits, guns, weapons and displays are very interesting, but the video presentation really sheds a lot of light on the Rangers. Their origins and... More

This was a great way to introduce my two girls to the Texas Rangers! We spent an enjoyable afternoon looking through the exhibits and then watching the film they have on the different eras of the Rangers. I would recommend this Museum to anyone with even the slightest interest in law enforcement.

The exhibits and especially the video presentation provided an excellent history of law enforcement in the wild west

Historical, interesting and well done. My wife was at the convention center and I was sight seeing the area. Area was under construction but it was easy enough to find and navigate to. I thought the displays were well thought out enjoyable. The movie was a nice addition to the displays.

It's a very unassuming complex off I 35 - don't just look at it and pass by - you would be so surprised at what it holds. An incredible deposit of Texas history and Texas Ranger (law enforcement) history that helped shape the State of Texas and continues to change the face of law enforcement for the future

This museum is well arranged with engaging exhibits of Texas Ranger memorabilia. The 45 minute DVD is very informative and interesting. I learned a lot about the history of the Texas Rangers that I did not know. This is a good museum for elementary aged children from about 7 or 8 through 12, and anyone 13 and up who likes... More

It was interesting to learn this history of the Texas Rangers. There were some high and low moments in the organization. The best part for us was hearing the history of Bonnie and Clyde - because their final destination was in our home town.

Never would have thought this would be so interesting! All the kiddos & teens I saw were having a great time, too. The layout is designed to keep you engaged, individual displays have hands-on activities, and there's a scavenger hunt to get you to really dig into each exhibit. (You can hear other people as they get to one exhibit... More

Took my 11 year old son and he enjoyed seeing the men that helped shape Texas. They have neat collection of old guns. The museum takes you through the evolution of the Texas Rangers. Cool place to spend a couple of hours.
