The kids did like the scavenger hunt, and there were some interesting things there. But for the price it was extremely small, even with the scavenger hunt I think maybe 30 minutes. I guess it was Air Conditioned, which helped.

Well the name certainly deceived me. There was not a whole lot from frontier times in this museum but there was a whole smorgasbord of items from all time periods. Interesting and cheap!

My wife and I really loved going through this smallish museum. It was packed with all kinds of old stuff - cowboy stuff, saddles, Western art, tools, radios, tv's, military artifacts, coins, and much, much more. A nice way to spend 1-2 hours browsing through history.

This small museum has the best collection of Indian arrowhead and points that I've ever seen! Lot's of history and information on the cattle drives of old. Really cool!

Building looks small but there is a lot to see in a small space. Must see if in Bandera Texas. The staff was very friendly and my husband and I enjoyed this very much.

We have visited this small museum 2 times: once by ourselves and once with friends. We found it to be a small, informational museum about Bandera and cowboy history. Lots of artifacts and old timey items to browse.
