Lots of animals that have been stuffed. Some full sized and others just the heads mounted on the wall. The history of the Texas Rangers was also very interesting. There was also a whole section of optical illussions.

Sat at the bar and the bar tender was very nice. Food had to be ordered from another area. Portions were large and sandwiches were very good.

We had tickets as part of a package so we decided to go here. There is a lot of history with this saloon. Didn't understand all the taxidermy. One of the weirdest museums I have been too.

The Texas Ranger Museum was very interesting. It has a lot of old artifacts and a lot of history. The Buckhorn Museum is also very interesting. I would make it a must see.
