As you enter the star-shaped building, submerge yourself in the nation of Texas! To start your visit, watch a 20 minute film that takes you through the 8-year period of the Republic of Texas after gaining independence from Mexico.

This is a lovely architectural building set in the beautiful State park. It is fine for both adults and children. They even have a special discovery room to keep the little ones interested.

Even if my husband's a former Texas History teacher, and we've talked a lot about it, there's always more to learn. It was easy and fun here at the Star of the Republic Museum. The tour comes with a CD recording that guides you through. The exhibits were very clear and well presented, with even some "hands on" things with... More

This is a hidden jewel in Central Texas! So much value about the birth of the state, a really nice and informative set of displays at the museum. A really great way to spend a day, picnic and a stroll around the grounds, plus you get to learn about the greatest state of the united states
