Had passed this museum which is located just off I-30 approaching Dallas many times without time to stop. This visit, I made time to stop and was very glad I did. This museum is actually two museums - One whose topic is Audie Murphy and one whose topic is cotton. I only had time to visit the section on Audie Murphy. This excellent small museum contains lots of information on Audie Murphy and on the times in which he lived. The video and other displays were informative and well done. The museum covered his entire life, including the hardships of his childhood, his heroism in WWII and his movie career. There were funny stories regarding his time in Hollywood, including the fact that Jimmy Cagney was the person who thought Audie should be a movie star and invited him to Hollywood. In WWII, Audie was a true hero who served our country with bravery and integrity. Highly recommend this museum and only wish I had been able to spend time in the cotton section. The museum entrance price is small and it has both senior & veterans' discounts.
