We recently visited the museum with our 13 & 10 year olds. This is a relatively new museum conveniently located close to the State Capitorl and the UT campus. We thought it had very nice exhibits presented in an up-to-date way. It is a great way to explore Texas history and a popular field trip destination for school groups. There are two theaters available for a separate admission fee , an Imax theater which we did not visit and another theater that offered a choice of 2 films, one on extreme Texas weather and the other on Texas history. We saw the film on Texas history which lasted about 20 minutes and found that it included some special affects and "disney" like touches that are engaging for kids. Some of the affects were loud and could be a little frightening to very young children. We had a great visit!
