Reviewed September 27, 2012

We visite this center while in Lubbock, and found it very interesting. The indoor museum was good, with all the old weaponry, and other exhibits. We particularly liked the outdoor part of the museum, with all the buildings like they were many years ago. Everywhere was very clean and tidy.

Carve out some time to visit this great museum. It's a walk through Texas history. The docents are great and quick to answer questions. Loved it.

“A unique place, very interesting”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

This is a really cool place to learn about the heritage of early Texas settlers, and the lifestyle of old west in general. There are a lot of really cool, authentic houses on the property which you can tour and get a real feel for how life used to be. The carol of lights event (sometime in mid-December) is definitely the coolest time to visit, especially if you have kids. Other times of the year are very good to visit as well, but kids might get a little impatient after a while (which is true for a lot of museum-type atmospheres). All-in-all, definitely worth checking out if you have some time in Lubbock.
