It's like the Alamo in that it's smaller than you think and none of it is original. The fort isn't even in it's original location. Really not much to see.

Small, quiet museum on campus. Shows how the fort looked in the early days before it was moved to campus. Explains all the history surrounding the fort and the town of Nacogdoches.
