“3 floors of what makes Texas, Texas!”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

This museum is a must see for anyone who even remotely wonders what it means to be a Texan. Three floors of state history documenting all aspects of our great state and her past. A good bit of information on the Texas Revolution and how we became an Independent Nation before joining the United States.

There are also two movie screens here, including an IMAX screen. Go see "The spirit of Texas" and "Texas - The Big picture", you'll get a sense of what a Texans spirit is all about.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Fantastic history of Texas. The "Stars of Texas" theater show is something you should not miss. I was also told the traveling Texas high school football exhibit was one of the highlights. Even though I am a huge football fan, not being from Texas the exhibit did not do much for me.

“Brief overall view of Texas”
Reviewed November 23, 2011

Its pretty good overall introduction of Texas so you don't have to read the book. Parking is $8.00 at the museum underground parking lot. Best go there early, park the car and explore the surrounding area. Blanton Museum of Art is just behind it.

“Excellent Texas History!”

You will definitely walk out of this Fantastic Museum knowning more about Texas than you ever knew before. The displays were great and enjoyable for everyone of all ages. If in the Austin area make sure and save a couple of hours to visit this Museum.
