Yes, yes, go to the Silos at Magnolia. This museum, is also a definite must. Great history, well put together, and excellent exhibits. A wonderful tribute to America's oldest state law enforcement agency.

It was an interesting place to visit. Lots of things to see. It had a dedication area for the Texas Rangers, some who lost their lives. It was moving.

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.
