“Best museum in Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Great displays of all relevant historical periods of Texas: good movies, and interactive venue. I could have stayed all day, but had to see the LBJ pres museum, which is equally fascinating.

“Great if you like history...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went with family and saw the "all about texas film" in the interactive theatre - which was very cool. I didn't expect to have as much fun as we did in. The walk through exhibits were pretty cool and the IMAX movie we saw on trains was awesome! Check out the gift shop for some neat Texas/Austin souveniers if you aren't from here.

“Learn about how Texas was created as a state”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you like history, you will love this museum. It tells the story of how the Spanish, Mexican, Native Indian and European settlers, fought for and negotiated a state from this vast territory. Famous battles, and lesser know fighting is told in a very interesting way. My wife and I went there for 2 hours and could not see it all. My future son-in-law, who lives in Austin, loves going there. He has been there at least 4 times, and finds something new each time. Well worth the visit, and it is just a few blocks north of the Capitol, and just south of the University campus.
