It's small place, but full of Babe's memorabilia that spans her entire 45 yr life and athletic career. She grew up in Beaumont and attended high school here. She was quite a talented lady who was well respected around this area, but also worldwide in her day. Babe was an Olympics medalist, winning in all 3 events that she entered.... More

One of my favorite female athletes. The building is unusual and the inside displays are very simple, but they tell a great story about this native from Beaumont.

"Babe" was unquestionably the best female athlete of all time. This exhibit hall showcases her various careers in track and field and golf and alludes to her amazing abilities in other sports. I particularly enjoyed old newspaper articles re: her life and performances...especially one with her and Ted Williams during spring training. Give it an hour or so.

Everything and anything about Babe is here. A great location right off the highway. Worth a stop especially if you are a sports person.

The exhibit is well done. The Babe is the greatest female athlete ever and maybe with all her accomplishments, the best athlete ever. The museum is easy to get to as it is right on the feeder of IH-10.

A small tribute to a great athlete from Beaumont. It is a location that could easily be passed by since it looks small but, there is good information in the small area which makes you want to find out more about the Babe. I hope she will always be remembered.

This is such a special tribute to the greatest female athlete of all time. But it easily could be twice as big and 10 times better publicized. In fact, Beaumont should pick one of its unique landmarks and rename it after The Babe.

I don't know if I would call this a museum. The display consisted of glass cases of photos and memorabilia relating to Babe's career encircling the Visitor's Center main desk. When I left I felt like I wanted more detailed write-ups, though we were given a fact sheet that contained a lot of information about her life. I liked seeing... More

Go see this awesome tribute to the Babe. Her records still stand today and all are here to see. Check out the exhibit of the golf ball hit by boxing legend Joe Louis and retrieved by local youth attending groundbreaking.
