My wife and I took our 8 year-old grandson to the Brookshire's Museum and Country Store and a great time was had by all. All of the animals, replica store and playground were outstanding. My grandson was full of questions and the friendly staff was eager to help. Couldn't have been friendlier! For such an exhibit to be maintained and offered free to the public is almost unheard of these days. Kudos to Brookshire's for attaining such a high level of community service!

This is a great museum for wildlife! Enjoyed walking through and seeing all the animals (stuffed), especially the full size ones. Favorite part was the old time country store. Really enjoyed seeing all the things that bring back memories of my youth. You could spend an hour or more looking at all the "old timey" stuff and what it sold for back then. Best part, it's free!

We took our Granddaughter and she thoroughly enjoyed seeing all the animals and the history behind them. She was amazed at the size of the bears and their claws and their teeth. The cost was free and you don't see that very often these days.

We love the playground! It is extremely clean and well maintained -- including the restrooms. (Even has little potties for little kids.) The museum is fun, and very interesting. Nice employees and a little store for candy, toys and Texas-themed gifts.

Nice place to go see some animals (all stuffed) but so pretty and the kids enjoy walking through the old store and playing in the play ground. Some of the animals scare my daughter but she likes it for the most part. She is 4. One thing about tis museum ..... It's FREE
