A must stop in Waco

Definitely one of Waco's greatest accomplishments. While you're there be sure and stop by the soda fountain and get an original Dr Pepper the way it was made way when.

If you have any interest in the Texas Rangers and their part in settling and formation of Texas, this is a must see. There are displays of the firearms, equipment, and clothing or uniforms they have worn from the early 1800's to the present. It is very well laid out and the information sheet they give you recommends a path... More

Exhibits need to be updated and more interactive. But, it is a valuable museum for Texas history and to honor the brave Rangers who served.

we didn't realize that some of the Texas rangers are located so close to where we live. plus when we went the had a live demostration on the chuckwagon, we tried homemade bisquit from the old west, guns. they had dressup for the kids (too funny) and the tv serious that had to do the TX rangers.

Was thoroughly impressed with all the history in this museum. Did not know Texas had such a place to honor all their Rangers.

Huge displays of all the guns used back in the 1800's along with clothing, saddles, badges, etc. I had a hard time getting my husband out of there but being the lady in the group the guns didn't really interest me. What I did find interesting though was how the Rangers filed their reports, and little bits of information like... More

I found this museum to be very informative. I'm not from Texas originally, so I knew very little about the Rangers history. There are numerous displays with items from and about individual Rangers, There are videos about the Rangers with some old video clips going way back. There were many interesting dispalys of artifacts used by different Rangers.

My kids really enjoyed the old guns. It is not a big place, but very interesting to learn about the Texas Ranger history. We home school, so counted it as an history lesson.

It's not so big that it takes all day, yet has enough interesting artifacts and topics that it takes a few hours. My father is older and cannot walk for extended periods but this was perfect for him. Very fun and interesting for everybody from teens on up!

This was a great museum that focused on the history of our Texas Ranger....law enforcement, not baseball.... I personally enjoyed the 45 minute movie on the history of the Rangers. Well worth a couple of hours to visit
