I really enjoyed this old historic home. It is very inexpensive and well worth the short time it takes to go through it and the beautiful garden in the back. The kitchen is especially interesting.

This is a very small museum but was interesting to see the artifacts and read about the history. Enjoyed the courtyard and the plants there.

We had friends visiting from out of state and wanted to show them some of the local Texas History. The Governor's Palace is always on the list for us! So many people skip this location and think only of the Alamo and then there are those who are expecting a grand European palace. This is such an important part of Texas history that I am always humbled by the fact that it sits in San Antonio is so underappreciated. There is even an avocado tree that bears fruit on the grounds. The interior and artifacts are quite remarkable. This should be on everyone's list as a must see.

The grounds are beautiful, however the house is nothing like the website...it was empty and boring. Cost too much for what you get. There are many other things to do in San Antonio.
