When my husband put in the Texas Ranger Museum in his phone GPS I figured we were going to see the history of the baseball team, wrong. This is about the Texas Ranger's law officers. Lot's of good history on the Rangers, very interesting on how they got started and the different name changes they have had. Tons and tons... More

Exceeded my expectations. Contains a lot of displays historical Texas ranger guns and equipment. Excellent one hour movie in history of Texas Rangers. Bigger then we thought. Takes about an 1 and 1/2 to tour. You could spend hours if you wanted a lot to see and read about.

This is an exhibit especially interesting to Texas residents or history buffs. I enjoyed it very much......You can leave the movie at any time if you feel it is too long. There is also a nice place to camp nearby if you so desire.

This should have been an interesting place to visit but we were disappointed. The 45 minute movie was too long and was poor quality (History Channel DVD), it was a bit dated too. There was no staff other than the receptionist to answer the burning questions we had. Go visit and see if you agree with me

I have always liked the Ranger museum, even when we took field trips in school. It was not until I was older that I appreciated the Museum and the Texas Rangers history. I thought it was interesting to finally pay attention and find out they killed bonnie and clyde!

The formation of Texas from 'Tejas' territory is a big part of early Ranger history. The movie covers the high & low points in history of the Texas Rangers. Visitors become aware that 6 different flags flew over what we know as the state of Texas. One cannot help but feel the plight of native cultures who were pushed out,... More
