Ok, we spent the day looking at all types of attractions and as far as information about Babe, wonderful little free museum with free parking. Lots of pictures, items to look at and an informative history of this Olympiad. Only 1 disappointment. There were no...More

First it wasn’t open at noon on a Saturday although the hours said it would be. Guess the attendant was taking a lunch break and that would be fine if she had put a sign up saying that. We went an hour later and it...More

Very small museum with tribute to a single athlete. Mostly memorabilia. Dang good golfer. Worth a stop if in the area but not a real destination.

This is a very small museum that is a bit out of the way. It focuses only on Babe. She is from Beaumont, and she was a great athelete in many sports...especially golf/

Not a large museum, but definitely worth a stop. Babe was a truly outstanding, once-in-a-lifetime athlete - few if any men could touch her accomplishments. Everyone needs to know about her. You can see the whole museum comfortably in 30-45 minutes, and it's just off...More

After you've visited the museum, don't forget to visit her grave at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park (Google it or checkout findagrave). In addition to her grave you will also find the Big Bopper buried here. Very nice well maintained place. Recommended

Quite a nice tribute to this professional golfer and her accomplishments. It doesn't take too long to go through the museum, however it is full of information about a talented woman who excelled years before women's lib.

Not bad for the price ;). This is basically a place to house pictures, medals and trophies from Babe's life. Nothing fancy or interactive. Takes about 15 minutes to look at everything tops. She was an amazing athlete but we learned more about her from...More
