Awesome part of history every Texan should see this museum! All Texans are bred for strong Texas pride! Wish they hadn't got rid of their smashed penny though!! I live for smashed pennies!

If you are into law enforcement and/or guns; you will get your fill on this museum. I have been here twice now and love it. There are many displays and art that goes through the decades. There is a film you can watch just check for the times. Kids will like visiting this museum.

Very interesting museum. Learned a lot about the history of the Texas Rangers. Their most famous case, their weapons and all their equipment.

Lots of pistols and long arms, especially if you're a 1911 fan. These folks deserve our respect, as do all dedicated law enforcement professionals. $6... More

History buffs are going to love the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and Museum. The exhibits are well done and the visitor truly gets a sense of what is was and is like to be a Ranger.

We took the family and everyone had fun. It's a self guided tour but everything is well labeled so we found everything easily. The museum isn't every large but there was plenty to see.
