  • This museum had fascinating exhibits about wars from the time of the Texas War for Independence to the present day. We spent 2 hours there and could have stayed longer. Highly recommend. Tip...

  • Located inside Camp Mabry, this free museum had an outdoor section with tanks and artillery, and an inside component with vehicles and other exhibits.

  • So impressed with this museum! Everything was well grouped into sections and labeled well. We were also astounded by their tank and artillery collection. It was so amazing to see them in person!
  • The museum has many wonderful passive and interactive displays, unique artifacts, and actual equipment, vehicles, and armament from the history of Texas' Military. We went for their Living History days, in which brave volunteers dress up in authentic uniforms and reenact battles of WWI, WWII, using everything they can to make it both authentic, yet enjoyable. My kids loved it. They run almost exclusively on donations, which go toward restoration, preservation, and education programs such as these. Lots to learn and do, and it's just outside downtown Austin.
