Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A fascinating life story captured in a restored house. When we went there was a temporary exhibition about the history and understanding of post traumatic stress disorder. It was both fitting and moving. Definitely worth the stop. It is right next-door to the restored home of O. Henry which is also by donation. Make time for both!

Even those that don’t like history classes love a great story, and the Joseph and Susanna Dickinson Museum documents a fascinating one! Susanna, one very tough woman, survived the Alamo with her child to be paid by Santa Anna as a messager to Sam Houston and joined Houston on the Runaway Scrape. If any of that story is not familiar to you, you’ll be engaged by this museum, located in downtown Austin right next to the O. Henry Museum. The museum is very well organized, very informative and engaging, and staffed with friendly, knowledgeable staff...and it’s free! A historical gem in downtown Austin, one of many!

This museum is the original house of one of the Alamo survivors commissioned to be built by her final husband. The house had been used as a variety of other businesses over the years so only the exterior is original. Three rooms are open to the public, one is a small library, one displays a bedroom and one has temporary exhibits, in this case some information about the Tejanos and a replica of a rifle and uniform used at the time. In the bedroom a commemorative quilt signed by descendants (some 5th generation) of the Alamo survivors. The staff volunteer was welcoming and approachable. 30 minutes is sufficient to see and read everything.

The staff were engaging and helpful to describe and tell the history of the former occupants of that era. It was great to see the contents of the house and see the exterior of the house in a relazing outdoor setting. I would like to back when I come back to Austin.

This small Museum was quiet but informational. With no prior knowledge of Susanna Hannig, I followed her interesting story of being a survivor of the Alamo, and her consequential relationships. I recommend stopping by if in Austin.

I was happy to walk and read thru the Joseph and Susanna Dickinson Hannig museum in Austin. Staff was available, and not overly assisting. Fun photo op inside, for the ladies.

It's interesting that it's here, and Hannig had a colorful life quite apart from surviving the Alamo (she made good in the end, which is always nice) - but really this is just a quick stop. You can do this and O'Henry next door in an hour and feel satisfied. Both are free.

Well preserved historic house from the 1860s showcasing the life of a remarkable frontierswoman known as the "Messenger of the Alamo". Gives the visitor an insight into that period of history. We had our caricatures done by Lisa. The museum has free admission and is open Wednesday to Sunday noon to 5pm.

This was the home of Susannah Dickinson - who survived the Alamo - before this visit I thought that there were no survivors of this event but evidently the women, children and at least one slave were not killed by the Mexicans

This is a charming and well presented museum it is only open Wednesday to Sunday.
The front door maybe a bit stiff giving the impression of being closed.
But persevere it is well worth the visit.
The staff are knowledgeable and really helpful.
