You get a good history of the Texas Rangers. There's a lot of guns and badges as expected. Stories of some of the Rangers' hero's that movies have been made about the big name guys that you'll recognize. Allow an hour to see.

Lots of firearms, that is for sure. After a bit everything starts looking the same. I was active duty 30 years and I am a law enforcement and firearm enthusiast, but I became a bit bored. There is an unimpressive gift shop. The staff members...More

This would be good for middle school age kids and up. I think that younger kids may find this boring. I’m not aware of any other attractions in that area.
