We spent hours walking through the museum. Museum covers prehistoric times through modern times. Learned a lot of history about the RGV and Mexico.

We visited during a weekend in February. Lots of activities going on. If you have children they will be amazed by the displays and you will be pleased with the history they learn about Texas, the Rio Grand Valley and the importance of the railroad. A true learning experience for the family. Well organized!

We visited here on a windy day when you couldn’t be outside and what a treat! We learned a lot and looked at many beautiful displays. You can tell there is a lot of pride put into this museum. The person at the front desk was very polite and helpful.

This museum is one of the most interesting museums I've visited. It is rich with history, with displays that perfectly describe the unique past of South Texas and the people who founded the area. We learned so very much and walked through it again just to study the exhibits. It is definitely a must-see for anyone interested in Texas and what makes the South so special.

We were spending two weeks birding in South Texas. This museum was great for helping us understand the history of the area and put much of it in perspective. First rate displays. Covers the history of the area from Wooly Mammoths through the indiginous people, to Spaniards, Texas Independence, and the modern era. You will be happy you went.
