Didn't know much about the Texas Rangers but this place is a great source of knowledge. Lots of weapons. (Especially Colts) It also has some good interactive things to keep kids busy. Like assemble a Colt, and find pictures "scavenger hunt". So if you're in town and have to choose between this and "the other museum" I'd recommend that you... More

I was not really interested in going to this museum, I was going to repay my husband for enduring Magnolia Market, a girly B&B and the Dr Pepper museum with me....but I loved this place. The guns are so incredibly detailed and beautiful....very well displayed and set up. The film was actually quite interesting. So glad that we went...can't wait... More

The showcases were full of guns, but the real story lines of the Texas Rangers just did not seem to be told. There just seemed to be a lack of presentation and production quality, although the stories are available to make it interesting. Preferred the Texas S ports Hall of Fame just around the corner.

This is a great monument to the men of the Texas Rangers. It tells their history and service well. It has a very extensive collection of the arms they personally used.

The museum is as it says. It is a history or the Texas Rangers (the Law Enforcement Agency not the Baseball Team). It goes way back to the Old West to modern times with lots to see and lots to read. There was also a 45 minute video. Give yourself 2 to 3 hours if you want to see everything.... More
