It's interesting that it's here, and Hannig had a colorful life quite apart from surviving the Alamo (she made good in the end, which is always nice) - but really this is just a quick stop. You can do this and O'Henry next door in...More

Well preserved historic house from the 1860s showcasing the life of a remarkable frontierswoman known as the "Messenger of the Alamo". Gives the visitor an insight into that period of history. We had our caricatures done by Lisa. The museum has free admission and is...More

This was the home of Susannah Dickinson - who survived the Alamo - before this visit I thought that there were no survivors of this event but evidently the women, children and at least one slave were not killed by the Mexicans

This is a charming and well presented museum it is only open Wednesday to Sunday. The front door maybe a bit stiff giving the impression of being closed. But persevere it is well worth the visit. The staff are knowledgeable and really helpful.

This quaint little museum gives a feel for how a family would have lived in Austin in the late 1800s. It also tells the history of the people that built and lived in the home. Susanna Dickinson survived a lot in her life from her...More

We were looking for the O. Henry House and walked into the this one. What a delight. The docent was extremely knowledgable and fun to talk with. Yes, the house is quite small but it is worth the time to drop in.

My son wanted to ride the Metro Rail and it's last stop headed south is right at these museums! The staff was super helpful and attentive. The exhibits were interesting. Small and stress free. We learned a lot!

A must do for all Texas people and visitors! This is a tiny place, but very humbling for her role in history. Listen and learn how someone dealt with being thrust into history. Parking can be a bear.

It's right next door to the O Henry Museum, and I'd recommend visiting both at the same time. Like the O Henry Museum, it's small but has interesting details. Worth doing, as long as you have the appropriate expectations.
