“Great place to visit but please don't park on the side of I45!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

There is a lovely gift shop and information center here at the statue. There are pictures of the construction of the statue, Sam Houston related gifts and souvenirs and clean bathrooms if you stop along your way. There is no fee to enter or explore the grounds. But please DO NOT PARK ON INTERSTATE 45 TO VIEW THE STATUE! There is a great parking lot if you come to the statue from State Hwy 75. It is illegal and very dangerous to stop on the side of an Interstate!

“Quick family visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Enjoyed the 30 minute stop, walking around, looking at the statute. The gift shop has a nice variety of items, including ice cream, which our group loved. The employees/volunteers were helpful and friendly. The grounds were maintained and safe.

“Great piece of Texas history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We stopped by here on our way home from Galveston. I'm so glad we did. Nice little outdoor area, with a cute gift shop and interesting little information area. The statue is amazing. If you're visiting Texas, or if you're a native you need to add this to your list.
