This is a very informative history of our Texas past with nice displays that are easy to read. I especially liked the timeline on the wall by the ramp that leads to more displays upstairs. It really puts the past in perspective. We did not watch the 20 minute move so will have to go back to do that.

If you are looking for a quiet place to learn the history of our Texas settlers, this the the best place ever. The displays are incredible and the folks who operate the museum are so nice. Come and enjoy the day. Talk a walk in the beautiful grounds.

Take a step back in time when Texas was it's own free country. This place was amazing. Go during the Texas Birthday Celebration and there will be story tellers ans a huge Texas cake.

Nice museum which traces the founding of the state of Texas. It has a thorough collection of artifacts and the way things were back in the 1830s and 1840s. Maybe a little pricey and sad that there was no educator discount. The movie was a bit boring unfortunately as well...

The museum is laid out well and includes a glimpse at the life style of Texans at the time and some very good interactive displays to help children learn and understand the life in these times. Actual history and some of the legend of its characters is covered. This is a two story building and there is a long ramp... More

This museum is two stories with a theater that shows a 20 minute video on the Republic of Texas. The video is done really well and we enjoyed the sit down after all the walking we had done at the Washington-On-The-Brazos site. The museum is laid out nicely and they have some great ways of engaging children of all ages... More

We were at the museum and convention center for the 2015 Texas Independence celebration. As my wife is a descendant of a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, the celebration takes on a special meaning. The museum and Washington on the Brazos park staff did a remarkable job in pulling this all together. The museum is rich with early... More
