Hours posted are 9am to 5 pm. We arrived at 10:20 and totally locked up. We waited a half hour and still closed. We walked down the street and the museum there was also closed but supposed to be open. We talked to the valet at the hotel next door and he seem to indicate that the lady who runs the museum sometimes "forgets" to show up for work. What a waste of gas and parking cost.

I happened across this museum and glad I stopped by. It is a small museum but is packed with allot of history of Laredo and the surrounding area. I was surprised about how much I did not know about the area. It is inexpensive and the staff are friendly. Great opportunity to explore Laredo history.

1. A Must see if you are in Laredo and like history. 2. HOWEVER it is not worthy of a long drive to just see the museum it self. 3. Hours it is open are off and on! Close to a hour after the posted opening time before someone showed up. 4. Parking can be tricky. Limited meter parking , if u can find one that works. Museum is On the old city square, across from the beautiful San Agustin Cathedral. The church does keep its main doors,locked during the day, when their are not having mass. Never found away to get in the church. 5. Is it safe? This area has its problems, so u need to be aware of what’s going on etc. There were a couple of groups of young men hanging around, 10am. And people asking for money. We really enjoyed the little museum, very helpful and nice staff.

Interesting historical building with info about the short lived Republic of the Rio Grande. Its easy to get in and out. Very inexpensive and only take about 30 minutes to see everything. Enjoyable for a quick visit and learn about something most people have never heard of and get an idea of the history of Laredo and its people. Nice way to kill a little time in the heart of downtown.

A small museum with some great things to look at. $4.00 to go in but you have three small rooms to look at. I thought it was educational. I would recommend for smaller groups.
