“Neat place to check out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

If you like history, and small, free museums, come to this quaint little place. There are all kinds of neat old gadgets, and rooms that are set up with very old things.

“I nice break in the drive along I-10 in Texas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We stopped at the Annie Riggs memorial Museum. Well worth the stop. Located in the historic section of Fort Stockton. Don't miss the video introduction of this tour. Annie Riggs had an interesting life and a number of husbands. House is furnished in early pioneer and is interesting to see what life was like in a old western town

Just 5 minutes off I-10

Admission is $3.00.

“Eclectic Collection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This small museum in an old restored hotel had a little bit of everything: appliances, clothes, furniture, fossils, and cowboy artifacts. The architecture was interesting, and everything was displayed in the old rooms. There was a short video presentation at the beginning. Without the video, it probably took us 30 minutes to see the whole thing.

“Friendly and informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I can verify previous reviews and add: The attendant was quite happy to see us as he had few visitors. Essentially we got a personal tour with a lot added that was not displayed. i really don't understand how anyone survived back then with the wars, droughts, cold, and sickness. This museum really brings out the hardiness and will of the early settlers. this is well worth its very modest price of admission.

“Step back in time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This museum is the actual hotel that Annie Riggs owned in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Appears that she was quite a character and was married several times. According to the video, which is shown before you explore on your own, there was a story to each husband.

When you enter it is as if you just went back to those days as much of it has been maintained that way with her furniture and accessories along with other items from that time.

The very inexpensive entrance fee makes it a very attractive place to visit, although it seemed to us that perhaps it should be increased somewhat in order to do some repairs to the building.
