To my knowledge, this is the only museum in the world solely dedicated to a female athlete. We hear today of women athletes who excel in one and sometimes two sports. This museum highlights a women who was born before women could vote and when the 1932 Olympics were over, everyone who could read or could listen to the radio... More

Quite a nice tribute to this professional golfer and her accomplishments. It doesn't take too long to go through the museum, however it is full of information about a talented woman who excelled years before women's lib.

Not bad for the price ;). This is basically a place to house pictures, medals and trophies from Babe's life. Nothing fancy or interactive. Takes about 15 minutes to look at everything tops. She was an amazing athlete but we learned more about her from watching an ESPN special.

Babe was a gold medal Olympian that started playing Golf and did so well that the men formed a Women's PGA league and forced her to play in her own league and not against them. Very interesting museum, a classic hidden gem in Beaumont and the nicest staff "Susie" in the whole southeast.

This is a small museum dedicated to displaying medals and trophys as well as pictures of Babe Didrickson Zaharias who was a masterful athlete. We did not feel very safe while visiting this museum! Should be located near other museums! Wouldn't recommend this for folks unless in a large crowd!!!

It's small place, but full of Babe's memorabilia that spans her entire 45 yr life and athletic career. She grew up in Beaumont and attended high school here. She was quite a talented lady who was well respected around this area, but also worldwide in her day. Babe was an Olympics medalist, winning in all 3 events that she entered.... More

One of my favorite female athletes. The building is unusual and the inside displays are very simple, but they tell a great story about this native from Beaumont.

"Babe" was unquestionably the best female athlete of all time. This exhibit hall showcases her various careers in track and field and golf and alludes to her amazing abilities in other sports. I particularly enjoyed old newspaper articles re: her life and performances...especially one with her and Ted Williams during spring training. Give it an hour or so.
