Now I know why Texans resist any government influence - it goes further back than the Alamo! Austin and Santa Anna, even Davy Crockett are included.

We loved it. Very well organized and the historical flow of information is displayed in an informative and entertaining fashion. Excellent artifacts from each era with concise informative explanations. We had not planned visiting, but when a local friend urged us to check it out, we added it to our day and really enjoyed it. PS go to the IMAX and see whatever is playing, you'll love it too.

Friends from Austin took us here. It is a lovely museum and does a great job of conveying Texas history. The movie Star of Destiny is well worth the extra fee!

Even if you aren't enthusiastic about museums, you will LOVE this place. Everything Texas kitsch is in there from Cadillacs to NASA artifacts. The exhibits change so even on a second visit, I saw new things. The store is awesome for souvenirs, including the Homesick Texan Cookbook. And don't miss the chocolate bars wrapped as tamales! They were favorites with my crew.

The Texas State History Museum is a model for combining a wide variety of exhibition techniques with historical facts. There were wonderful videos, re-creations,recordings--such as from of those who faced the problems of making a living on a ranch in West Texas--short movies, etc. It was both fun and easy to learn something. You didn't feel overwhelmed by a ton of boring old dates and facts. The building is huge, as befits Texas; there are a nice cafe and a gift shop on the first floor.
