    TEXAS RANGER HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM
    This is an excellent museum with many fascinating exhibits. It's hard to imagine anything better or more comprehensive on the life and times of the Texas Rangers. It's well worth stopping by if you're passing through.

    Great museum!
    Always wanted to stop in here and learn all about the Texas Rangers. The museum is nicely done and has a quite lengthy film to view which is very informative. We enjoyed walking throughout the museum reading all the exhibit info and viewing some of the beautiful artwork. There is also a gift shop at the end.

    Enjoyed the museum
    Great place to see history of the Texas rangers. Recommend the movie which is 45 minutes long. It needs to be updated but does a great job explaining the beginnings to recent past. Great exhibits but a lot of reading to get full context. Free parking and next to visitor center.

    Must See - Tour of Texas Visit
    Stopped by on our journey from Austin to Dallas, museum was very quiet on the day we visited. The exhibits are well presented and interesting. If you are mildly patriotic this place is a must see - guns guns and more guns. Take a visit !! from a Welsh (UK) visitor

    Great Museum
    I was very excited to visit this museum and I was not disappointed. There is so much to see and read. Be prepared for that. If you are a law enforcement fan or a gin fan, this place is for you. I learned a lot here. Loved the exhibits on Frank Hamer, the man responsible for putting an end to Bonnie and Clydes murder spree.

    Love of western history
    Sunday in Waco can be quiet (closed for religion ?). Walked along the Brassos river to the museum. Modest entry fee. Lots to read and see. Good details on the main history and a comprehensive movie , 25mins, with many guns on display.

    Great History Museum
    Very nice museum and well done. Lots of artifacts. There is a 45-minute movie that you can watch. It's well done but seems like it could have been cut shorter. Enjoyed seeing the Bonnie and Clyde displays. If you like history and/or guns you will like this museum.

    Good balance of history and memorials
    The museum has quite a few artifacts and presents the life of a ranger very well. The beginnings of the Texas Rangers was particularly interesting to me. The movie was also good, but a bit long. We were told they are getting a new (and shorter) movie soon. Most of the museum was memorials for fallen rangers. I was impressed by this devotion to the memory of those that served.

    Good Experience!
    It was interesting to learn about the history of the Texas Rangers although before we went, my wife was wondering why I was interested in a baseball team LOL. We were there about 2 hours and both of us enjoyed all the different exhibits. Don’t miss the documentary film about how and why the Rangers were originally formed. It is about 40 minutes long and runs every 2 hours or so.

    A Great Museum
    First time here. If you're interested in the Texas Rangers or just Texas and U.S. history, you'll enjoy the displays here. There is an optional 40 minute documentary about the Rangers. Even if you're just into historic guns, you'll like it here. They have one of the automatic rifles used to take down Bonnie and Clyde. The display of historic badges is amazing. Give yourself 45 minutes to an hour for a self-guided tour and don't forget the gift shop at the end. The Texas Rangers Hall of Fame is really nice. Many exhibits to look at different heroes. I highly recommend this museum and I'll be coming back.

If your enjoy history and want to learn about the exceptional Texas Rangers, past and present, see this museum. There is so much to see, that it might seem overwhelming, but go slow, read as much as you can, and peruse the exhibits as a true part of Texas and its history.

Had a great time, and a whole lot to look at!
Went with my 6 year old daughter, and had an amazing time. They give kids a scavenger hunt to do to help them explore the museum, and at the end they give them a free gift!

10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a good educational trip for themselves or family.
