This was a very pleasant must see stop in Waco, Texas. The museum is huge with thousands of pieces of memorabilia provided to the Texas Rangers by its members. They are continually adding on to the exhibit and one of the impressive things I noticed was the information on the shooting death of Bonnie and Clyde in Louisiana since they... More

Place was very informative about the history of the oldest law enforcement agency in Texas. My 10 year old was enthralled with all the displays

This place was so much better than I expected!! And bigger!! It was totally worth my $7 and I would've paid more. I learned a lot and even though I'm not from Texas, I kinda wanted to be when I left. 😉

Great 45 min film about Texas Rangers beginning and highlights over the years. So many well displayed tributes. Great way to learn the Texas Rangers are so much more than Walker, Texas Ranger. The price is $7 offering military and senior discount at $6.

Personally, I really enjoy Texas history. The Texas Rangers were, and still are, a big chunk of Texas history. There's an old Texas saying, "One riot, one Ranger". Here, at the museum, just off I-35 in Waco you can go all the way back to the origin of the Ranger. Certainly worth a visit.

The long history of the Rangers was really detailed in its layout and display. You were really brought back in time. It displayed all the most prominent personnel that made the Texas Rangers such great organization.

I've lived in Texas for 2 years and have read about a dozen books on the revolution and the Rangers, with emphasis on the greatest Ranger, John Coffee Hays. The museum was very high on my to-do list. It lived up to all my expectations (and they were high). Do some research before you go.

I love anything to do with history and this was not disappointing. They have a lot of interesting displays and play a short movie that tells about how the rangers began. I enjoyed this a lot. If you are and American history buff and you like westerns this is a must.

If you want to learn about the history of the Texas Rangers,this is the place to come. Rooms full of guns displayed in cases with the type and history of each. Lots of beautiful tack and very detailed accounts of the Ranger's run-ins with the bad guys and information of how they developed their forensic investigative abilities. This is a... More

A great walk through Texas history and the men who shaped it. Lot of antiques. You will walk away with a good sense of the Rangers through the years. Be sure to watch the film, they where honest about the fact they were not always the honorable people they are today.
