I can't really rate the attractions available here, but I did pop in to take a look at the stuffed animals on the walls around the saloon and shopped for souvenirs in their gift shop. Found something for everyone back home. Glad l stopped by

We did not anticipate how interesting this would be. We actually spent more time here than we thought we would. Would recommend seeing this. It is unique. So it the Texas Ranger Museum that is also in the same building.

Interesting exhibits of all levels. Read letters and certificates or just look at the medals, guns, animals...The gift shop had a little something for everyone and at very reasonable prices.

The Buckhorn is unique. It has a long history in San Antonio. It has many types of mounted animals and many good historical displays. The whole museum is very interesting and the food is also good.

Great place to visit, looks small but the museum inside goes on forever with animal heads, full bodies, freak show, guns, swords, knives, bow and arrows, chairs made out of animal horns and hide and so much more with a restaurant and bar.

.... while walking all over town. Plenty of draft beer choices to enjoy at the old-timey bar while admiring (or being sad about the killing of) beautiful animal trophies displayed on all walls.

The Buckhorn is a fun place, and it was part of a ticket package. I don't know if I'd go back, but it was an interesting place. Lots of stuffed animals, and Texas Ranger memorabilia. Kinda fun!
