Great museum for those interested in law enforcement history or gun history. Museum has a large collection showing the history of the Rangers and the firearms they've used. A def don't miss if your interested in the subject.

This is one of my favorite museums. I've been here several times and never get tired of it. I've taken several friends here and they are impressed. Being a history buff, this is a place I could easily spend a whole day in!

Traveling North or South on I-35 in Texas ???? You'd be missing a true Texan treat for yourself and/or your family , if you did not exit at 335-B to see this magnificent collection ! Not only will you see a vast collection of guns , but a well produced & informative video about the history of the Texas Rangers... More

Guns, guns and more guns. Antique guns, guns that 'won the west' Spanish guns, Mexican guns, outlaw guns, A little history sprinkled in, then more guns! Leave through the souvenir shop...

Went to this museum knowing very little about the Texas Rangers and learnt a lot. The video is excellent and there is so much information! The paintings of some of the rangers are brilliant. The gift shop is good and the restrooms the cleanest ever!!

Was here for a wedding reception (the happy couple were big sports fans). It was perfect for our group of about 60ish people. All guests got to walk through the museum for free and we ate in the foyer at tables. I was impressed.

Interesting history exhibits. Some hands-on for the kids and ex-kids. Do you know how heavy a Colt Repeating Pistol is? Lift it and feel its almost 5 pounds! I liked the forensics exhibit-past and present. Much of it is a memorial to the Rangers of the past. There is a 45 minute History Channel film filled with info and is... More

We recently visited for a second time, this time with family. As always, it's great to read all the history and learn more about the 'wild west' of Texas (My being from AZ, I've grown up with a fair share of wild west stories.) This time we watched the 30-minute video which tied up some loose ends, to include how... More

My husband was chomping at the bit to see this attraction, me not so much but I was wrong. I learned so much about Texas history and specifically the Texas Rangers and their place in law enforcement. It was only $6 for his ticket (senior) and $7 for mine, very affordable. We started out watching a film in the rotunda... More
