This is a small museum dedicated to displaying medals and trophys as well as pictures of Babe Didrickson Zaharias who was a masterful athlete. We did not feel very safe while visiting this museum! Should be located near other museums! Wouldn't recommend this for folks unless in a large crowd!!!

The museum is small but it has a lot of exhibits and trophies from Babe's life. Very interesting! The staff was very friendly and helpful.

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.
