“Only one interesting floor....”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We went to the State history museum full of energy, but left a bit disillusioned. When we got into the museum, they were remodeling the entrance for a party that was to be held in the museum. That meant we couldn't enter normally.The ground floor is only interesting if you want to know about Indians battling Spaniards. I found it quite boring. The first floor is very good, showing the battle for the Alamo. This is the stuff i expected to see. The second floor shows more about commerce (cattle and oil). All in all: not what I had expected and a bit disappointing.....toilets are good, though :-).

Great place to spend a Sunday with the family. Lots of things to see/do/ and learn about Texas. Also has an Imax, which the kids enjoy the most.

“Nice little museum packed with fun.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Loved the museum, self-guided tour, liked going at our own pace, lots to touch, feel, and get involved in. Loved the gift shop too, great Texas items to buy for my relatives who are not lucky enough to live in Texas.

“Texas State History Museum in Austin”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

If you want to find out why Texans are so proud of their state, start by seeing the 45 minute I-MAX showing at the Texas Museum. Then tour the rest of the museum and learn about the history of this state.
