This place is, of course, a history museum so the information and visuals are excellent. We, however, enjoy the iMax theater. We were there recently to view a movie, a matinee, and the theater was virtually empty. Great seats !

If you find yourself looking for something to do with the family, look no further. The collection of Texas-specific artifacts is wonderful. And the IMAX theater is a huge plus.

Wonderful museum. Ticketing is easy. Be sure to see the little history of Texas film on the second floor. Well done.

Lovely surprise while registering for UTA dorm with my daughter. Very beautiful photography. Hop onto the top floor to find a superb collection of Big Bend National Park pics. Thanks!

A very disappointing and expensive experience for two tickets and parking. Many of the "live" exhibits had been taken down and replaced with documents, maps and a video. IMAX theater was closed as was the snack bar. Not for younger children.

Great family place to learn Texas history. Easy access and is reasonably priced. Lots of historical artifacts and documents.

Texas has such rich history. This museum, while quite new and beautiful just feels like if doesn't have any direction.
