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...

This museum is a great look at Texas history the whole family will enjoy. They have a number of documents and artifacts that help chronicle the history of the Republic/state. The exhibits are well put together and laid out so kids will enjoy them and be interested in learning more. There is also a video about the history of the... More

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

Got to love Texas history! This museum is run by Blinn College and is certainly worth the entrance fee. The movie was interesting, the first floor had a great overview of the Lone Star States humble beginnings as far back as the Native American Indians. Loved the upstairs area with all the artifacts. Great displays of medical tools, children's toys,... More

This museum has relics on display from early Texas History, the Old 300, Texas Independence, and the Mexican War. It has an interactive room for the kids and begins with a short movie. I enjoyed the small hologram exhibit the best that shows faces talking and sharing personal experiences of what the life and times were like in early Texas.... More

The Star of the Republic Museum covers the history of Texas beginning with Native Americans. I like the explanation of the different uses they made of the Bison. Artifacts from LaSalle's La Belle are also very interesting. One of the highlights is the timeline of Texas, American and World events on the way to the second floor. What a great... More
