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.

Not for me but it's a well-done Hall of Fame with supporting museum exhibits. Big focus on weapons - mostly guns.

I had no idea this place would be so interesting. I work for law enforcement so obviously there's an attraction but it was great! I highly recommend.

If you are into Texas, guns and manifest destiny, this one's for you. Bigger than I would have thought. Does a good job of covering the bases.

We stopped here while visiting Waco and I'm glad we did. They have an incredible collection of artifacts and hands -on exhibits. The video presentation gives a good history of the rangers and their present-day duties. I especially liked seeing the actual weapons carried by Bonnie and Clyde (as well as the ones that took them down), it gives a... More
