“Get your Big Bend History and your bearings”

Attraction details
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Museum is easy to find, parking and admittance are free, staff are friendly and helpful. A scale model of the Big Bend Region allows you to get your bearings and the displays give you an idea of the rich history of the area. This is a must see for a fan of the Big Bend area or if you think you want to become a fan.

I visited the Museum of the Big Bend for the first time today. I was very impressed by the simple, easy to understand display boards. Everything was clearly labeled and explained. Some great local history! All in all, a good place to spend an hour or two.

A great place to spend a couple of hours...a wonderful Museum. It has been relocated since our last visit, so be aware of that if you've been there before.
