What a great museum - it's much bigger inside than it looks from the outside. A great 45 minute film gives a good overview and history. LOTS of guns on display; you even get a chance to hold a Colt - and feel how incredibly heavy it is. We will definitely be back.

Really enjoyed the 45 min long film- wished it lasted even longer. Interesting display cases loaded with photos, guns, arrows. Cost $6 for seniors $7 for adults well worth it.

This brings the story to life of the real Texas Rangers and will take you back in time and up into modern times. The Texas Rangers are such a big part of Texas History and a big part of the Texas culture today. This place is very knowledgeable and if you are from out of town, you should stop here.... More

Very easy to find from I-35. Well appointed and lit displays. great historical background. I was particularly impressed with the movie/narration and the museum's willingness to show the good with the "not-so-good". I would recommend this exhibit to anyone with children. Oh yeah--there are plenty of guns on display inluding some "touchables". A totally enjoyable experience and well worth the... More

Brings to life (literally some hands on) days of the "old west" in Texas. Amazing displays of guns and true tales of the legendary Texas Rangers. Exciting modern day display showing how the Rangers still serve in Texas. On I-35 in Waco - easy off&on. Don't miss this if you are anywhere close by.

My husband and I loved visiting this museum. It was a wealth of information about our history. I really enjoyed learning about the Texas Rangers and what all they accomplished.

Interesting stop. Lots of firearms. Good to know these individuals are remembered for their sacrifices. Glad I stopped in. Riverwalk nearby to walk along the river.

This museum is a great snapshot of Texas history. Lots of reading and cased firearms, so if you aren't into that maybe not your thing. But as a fan of the Lone Ranger it was a great place to see the "real story" of the Texas Rangers.

We were surprised at such a large museum. There was alot to see. We didn't not stay for the film because the temperature was warm inside. It was not too crowded as we went early, but was getting more crowded just after noon.
