Small but interesting museum chronicling the history of America's Buffalo Soldiers from the early days to modern times. Admission price of USD$10 just a little steep for what's on show, but it does support a good cause.

Thank you for taking the time to share feedback. We're happy to know you enjoyed exploring the chronicle of history for America's Buffalo soldiers. We hope you'll visit again in the future so we can provide a 5-star experience.
History comes to life in this museum. We were given an interactive, complete look at African American military history while also given context into the political environment. Great experience. A must do for travelers with children.

It makes us very happy to read a review like the one you’ve written. Positive feedback from our customers is the best form of endorsement. Feel free to come back soon for another great experience!
Easy to find, good car park. Captain Matthews is an inspirational collector with a mission. A genial, informative and funny host. Vietnam veteran with experience of the the grunts on the ground. Strongly recommended if you are in Houston.

This small museum is very interesting. The opening video is very moving. The contributors are all proud of their contribution to American history. The coverage of Black troops in the Civil War and Indian wars are especially good.
