Great place as a jumping off point for a visit to Austin. Great for kids, families and adults wanting to get a brief idea about the State of Texas and its history. We purchased 2 adult tickets which allowed us to see the current video( Star of Destiny) in the theater and the exhibits for $22. We spent approx 1.5 hours touring and might have stayed longer, but it was elementary school field day and the crowds of kids was a bit overwhelming. Still a good 1st stop for a Capital visit. It gives the history starting in Mexico and moving into independence and statehood. One is also able to hear about the pioneers for the above and those that lived in very harsh conditions and indured.
