  • This is an excellent museum, well laid out, at $5 it is very reasonably priced and the docents are helpful, friendly and enthusiastic. It is easy to find on the Sul Ross Campus and in an hour...

  • We came here not expecting too much and left very impressed with what was there. We especially liked the "Tall Pictograph" display and description. This museum is very well done indeed!

  • Great little museum on the Sul Ross campus. Very friendly staff and great gift store. The museum gives a nice history of the Big Bend area from the dinosaurs to now. Beautiful art and map rooms as well. Well worth the stop!
  • Great clean museum with lots of Big Bend history as far back as prehistoric times. It's like stepping into a timeline. Lots of beautiful artwork too. A must see in Alpine Texas.
