“See and Touch Actual History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

The staff of the Judge Roy Bean Museum are doing it right. The grounds are immaculately maintained, the staff is very friendly and can answer any question. Getting to walk into the actual building where Judge Roy dispensed justice was phenomenal. A lot of work to maintain, and they are doing it well. This visit does not take long to see everything, so it is a great and interesting rest stop for a road trip. Recommend adding this to a list of things to do when in the area.

“Excellent Tourist Information center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is first and foremost a Texas tourist information center, and it is one of the best. It has a ton of information about all the regions of Texas and a very accommodating staff. They seem genuinely happy to see and help visitors! The restrooms are spotless. What really sets it apart is its quirky and interesting homage to Judge Roy Bean - You can see his saloon/courthouse and his residence which he styled the "opera house" in the vain hope of luring Lillie Langtry to this remote part of Texas. There is also a very well-kept cactus garden surrounding the center with handicapped accessible pathways. Surprisingly beautiful. The only drawback is that there is no place to get a snack. There is a gas station at the turnoff to loop 25 which allegedly sells barbeque sandwiches, but they close very early - so don't count on grabbing a bite in the vicinity.
