Went to determine if my great grandfather was actually a Texas Ranger. They were extremely helpful. The museum is extremely interesting with a lot of exhibits.

Great Tribute to TX History
Aug 2021
Hubby and I toured the museum on a Saturday morning. We are both gun enthusiasts and were blown away by the unique displays of guns. The museum did a great job in curating such an important part of history and honoring those who bravely lost their lives. We spent approx. 1.5 hours here but, didn't make it in time for the 45 min film. This was actually the highlight of our visit to Waco - we were so happy that we stopped in.

A well-curated tribute to Texas's best law enforcement group.

The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum is located adjacent to Baylor stadium. It highlights the development of the Texas Rangers from Stephen F. Austin's colonization or Texas through today, even reviewing some events which were embarrassing at the time and more so today. Great way to spend a hot summer afternoon.

The exhibits are carefully cataloged and tell the story not only of the Rangers as a group, but of individuals and family groups dedicated to the tradition of keeping others safe. The website says to plan at least 90 minutes for the Museum; I suggest allowing a couple of hours or more. There's just a lot to see and read. Everything from clothing and equipment used by early Rangers, to equipment for the modern Rangers, to a 45 minute History Channel documentary on the most famous law enforcement agents in the world. Even the German Army in WW2 feared rumors of an invasion force of Texas Rangers!

Add this place to your bucket list. You won't be disappointed.

Lots to see
Apr 2021
There is a lot to see here. Almost overwhelming. While here I would recommend the 45 minute movie to give a little history. There are mementos from MANY Texas Rangers such as their boots, weapons, photos, badges, etc. I can't imagine anyone was left out. We learned so much that I will never be able to remember!

Just Awesome.

If you are law Enforcement or like Texas Law Enforcment History this is the place for you. There are lots of displays about the Rangers and their history. There is a 45 minute film about the Rangers. If you like Bonnie and Clyde this is the place for you. It was a Ranger that arranged their demise and that story is here. The museum is nicely laid out, there are also gun displays and lots of other idsplays to keep you busy.

Very Nice Museum and History
May 2021
There was much more history here than what I had imagined. It is much larger than I would have thought and very well organized. The movie inside also explains much of what you see and read about inside the museum with a decent overview of the history of the Texas Rangers. Worth a look.

I loved the cowboy/ Texas Ranger statue out front of the museum. The flag he is holding will bring tears!!! This is a great place to take a picture for history files of Texas. Please do not let the construction and heavy traffic mar your stopping to visit.. please visit!!
