We drove past it on our way from houston to dallas, so we decided to go in.
It has a lot of info. Ok for the kids. Short and interesting.
If you are driving by, do go in!

Dog said he served 18 months in Huntsville.

Just happened to stop by to take a break from a drive to the beach. Enjoyed it. My favorite was the letter that Clyde wrote to Ford praising how fast and reliable his cars were.....when he could get away with one.

We went on a day trip to Huntsville, and decided to stop in at the museum. Great price and very interesting items on display. Had a great time glad we stopped in.

We went here on a rainy day as a day trip from Galveston, and were not dissapointed. It's not very big, but have some very interesting exhibits and you're also able to take a "tourist picture" inside a prison cell. All in all a nice little place.
