Location right off the Baylor camppus so we gave it a try. I had a small discount coupon but it was still a bit pricey. I enjoyed it for a the first few minutes but guns only interest me for just so long. The grandsons really enjoyed it longer than I did. It is well done and full of history...I... More

This museum was of great interest to my husband. My daughter and I were interested enough, but it could not hold the attention of my eight-year-old son. His favorite parts were the display where he got to assemble and disassemble a gun, the dress-up area (a nice boon for kids), and the gift shop (the gift shop has some cool... More

If you are a gun person this is heaven for you. There must be thousands of different types of guns here. Hand to muskets to Tommy guns. Pictures of Rangers---currently 3 women. Well done displays of guns. Lots of info about importance of Rangers in the history of Texas.

Great place to go learn about the legendary Texas Rangers - the REAL ones, not the baseball team. :-) If you are driving through Waco, be sure to go check it out.

See the history of the Texas Rangers as a law enforcement organization that is known world-wide and another reason for Texans to be proud. Also while your there see if any of your ancestors were part of this historical group.

I thought I knew a lot about Texas history, but apparently not. This museum was so informative, the artifacts are spectacular and the staff is friendly. This is a must see for sure!

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.

This very spacious and indoor (air conditioned) exhibit gives you Texas Ranger history with displays from the 1823 beginning to now. The 45 minute movie is worth it for history buffs. The theatre is set up so you can come & go if needed, with ample space for strollers and handicapped. The individual displays are made from authentic memorabilia donated... More
