We had to leave too soon, but I really enjoyed seeing everything I was able to see. I adore history, especially Texas history and this is definitely the place to go to get educated on Texas and Sam Houston, a key player in our Texas history.

Wonderful place for children to walk the grounds and experience life in the 1800's. There are several buildings from throughout Houston's life such as his law office, his homestead house, and the house he died in. All are set up with furniture and items from his life. The grounds are beautifully kept, and the duck pond is a great place... More

We decided to stop and see the statue of Sam Houston and take pics as my husband is related to him. When we got out of the car and walked around we realized there was much more to see then we knew. Very nice little park.

The museum was well kept. It was educational and enjoyable. The staff was friendly enough. There is a gift shop. The grounds are great. It was really nice to take a walking tour of the homes Sam Houston lived in as well as the kitchen, law office, etc. There is a walking trail and a pond and creek with ducks... More

Spent the night in Huntsville, decided to visit on the way out. Grounds are free, parking easy, Excellent display of dwellings where family lived and how they lived. Kids will love all the ducks, chickens and roosters walking freely around the grounds. Docents were friendly and informative.

This is a really nice collection in regards to the life of Sam Houston. Some of the artifacts are rare and looking at the various buildings on the grounds were ALOT of fun for us!

This was a really nice surprise. For ten dollars total, 2 adults enjoyed a guided and informational tour (practically a private tour) of two homes of Sam Houston, enjoyed a brief but interesting video, checked out a lovely small museum. The grounds had mini trails and roosters, squirrels, birds galore. It was easily a two hour plus visit. I highly... More

We went through the park behind the museum. It was so nice and we enjoyed it so much. Buy some chicken feed and feed the wildlife. It was so interesting and so beautiful. There were some baby geese and chickens.

You don't have to leave the comfort or safety of your vehicle to see this beautifully carved headstone. Peaceful setting. Glad we got to see it.
