Frontier Texas! brings the frontier to life and lets visitors meet people who played out their lives on the Texas frontier. Frontier Texas! also serves as the official visitor center for Abilene and the Texas Forts Trail Region.

Learn the story of the old west through our 90 minute hands on old west adventure "Blood & Treasure on the Frontier."

This place is very educational while also entertaining. The exhibits were about to change so, I hope they continue to be just as wonderful.

Great family attraction and educational for kids and visitors. I'm glad they are closing at the beginning of the year for renovations though. The old exhibit... well I'd seen it 4 times already.

If you haven't been to Frontier Texas! then you haven't been to Texas. This experience is definitely a WOW factor. One of the few "museums" in the world featuring life size holograms who tell their story of life on the Texas frontier between 1780-1880. The NEW Frontier Texas (new version with more stories and holograms) will open March 2, 2013.
