Frontier Texas! Reviews
We were visiting from out of town and thought this place looked interesting. It's a very cool museum! There is a short movie at the end that was really fun and the talking holographic guides were very unique. It really brought history to life for us. I would highly recommend!
Beautiful grounds and visitors information center. Highly interactive history museum exhibit, with holographic narrator. Very cool. Digital Movie Theater in the round, 360 view, of being inside the wild west. Very clean facility. Knowledgeable visitors center staff. Wide variety of history books and items for sale.
