We absolutely loved this museum, off the beaten path on our Texas Roadtrip. Great information and the exhibits! Very informative and fun for the kids - the Pioneer Playroom was a huge hit!

So awesome and well displayed piece of Texas history. After a hike around in the same footsteps of the men that signed the independence of Texas....the Republic of Texas....the museum is a must see. It is two stories of history. Lots of information and artifacts.

The museum is a very educational and interesting place to learn all about the birth of Texas and its past. Do not miss the upstairs part.

One of the best things this museum has is an interactive play room for kids. It's very hands on for the littles. From dressing up in old clothes to milking a cow.

We loved this museum! First of all, it's actually shaped like a star! Great exhibits! Small interactive room for kids, but the adults were enjoying it just as much! Very informative and interesting! If you love Texas history this is the perfect place!

A great museum showcasing Texas history. Fabulous exhibits and great staff. It's a bit off the beaten path but well worth it. Allow several hours just to see...the adjacent park will take a bit more time on top of that Highly recommend a visit.

Once again we attended the Signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence celebration at Washington on the Brazos State Park, and once again, they did a remarkable job in site of a rainy weekend. Although this lessened the crowd for the event, it was a...More

If you know nothing about Texas pioneer history in 1836, you will learn all you need to know at this one museum. If you have visited several Teas history museums, there is still more to learn. I have visited about 12 different pioneer museums in...More
