We took our four children to see the museum today. They had a scavenger hunt for them and if they successfully completed their sheet they could bring it back to the gift shop for small prize. For the adults, they had a documentary on Ranger history and a great weapons collection. Friendly staff. Worth the trip to see it all!

I think you could be here for hours reading everything, but we skimmed through and got the gist. My husband was interested in the weaponry of which there was a lot.

Stumbled upon the museum by chance as it is almost hidden by the bridge crossing the Brazos River alongside the Balor University Football Stadium.

Much to learn here about law and order in Texas. Great movie to watch that gives you a overview of the history of the Texas Rangers and there role they played. This is well worth the time -- one can spend hours here.

My husband loved this museum and found great interest in the artifacts. I found great interest in some of the stories about the cases the Rangers solved - one of them in my own neighborhood (who knew?)

This is one of the best laid out museums I have visited. It laid out the chronology of the Texas Rangers and highlighted both the good and bad history. This museum wasn't afraid of lisitng the failiings as well as the successes of this great organization. The film presentation was outstanding. You need to be a history buff to really... More
