“Good for a couple hour visit (didn't do the IMAX)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

My husband and I visited the museum on a rare rainy Saturday in Austin. It was a good filler for a couple of hours. We didn't have the time to see any of the shows at the IMAX, but the museum itself will always have one good extra exhibit - happened to be FOOTBALL when we were there. That was definitely the highlight for us. Many of the "artifacts" are replicas, not the real deal, but still neat to see the history of the state (even as non-Texans).

“All this and an IMAX too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Three stories of Texas history and always an eclectic exhibit or two. Ample paid parking. Summer Friday evenings the museum often hosts free live band events.

“Nice museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Here is where to go for 3 hours or more to get the history of Texas the last 150 years. Well balanced as could be expected.
