Best part of the museum was the 45-min video of the history of the Texas Rangers, although it was produced by the History Channel. Otherwise, it was a fun way to spend a few afternoons.

This is a good exhibit of the history of the Texas Rangers. We did an unguided tour & were free to roam the exhibits for as long as we liked. Take time to watch the short 45 min movie. It was really interesting. Located right next door to Baylor Stadium.

A must see for all interested in western law enforcement both past and present. Daily, these Rangers fought though perilous times and continue today to bring justice to a vast area. Give these dedicated men and women the credit they deserve and respect. Watch the video before touring the museum.

We stopped by the museum on a one day trip to Waco, seeing the Magnolia silos, Dr. Pepper museum and here. My 8 year old son was thrilled with seeing all the guns on display and my husband and I enjoyed all the older displays of Bonnie and Clyde and even the early days of the Rangers. It was very...

If you ever wanted to know more about the Texas Rangers, this is the place. Watch the movie first, covers both positive and negative history of the rangers. Museum well organized, with both past and recent history sections. One room covers more modern crime solving. One room focuses on the the Lone Ranger movie memorabilia. Not the greatest place to...

This is a must see when in Waco, the history represented is absolutely astounding, they have a movie that is almost 1 hour long but worth your time if you are a history buff like me, try to go during a weekday it is less crowded.
