What a tribute to the men and women that protects Texas! It is amazing the history and artifacts that are shown. My family loved the visit. Stop by the Waco Tourism office next door.

I enjoyed my visit there, but you should take your time and not rush. By the way, "Lone Wolf" Gonzulas was a REAL Texas Ranger. He came along way before the TV show.
