If you want to know more about Texas must visit this museum. We enjoyed all the history and movies they play. The building is beautiful starting with the big star. A must see in Austin.

Since this place has been remodeled I have seen two movies here. It is a visual and audio experience. 3-D and 4-D viewing. Every seat is a good seat. Also, they now have their own popcorn and sodas.
