  • This place is amazing! We take our kids often, they love it and it’s FREE! As a history nerd I love it. Getting to see up close the vehicles and weapons used by both sides in multiple wars. Goes back to the fight for Texas Independence, the Civil War, World War I and II, Vietnam, Operation Iraqi Freedom and the War on Terrorism. Has good book and gift section as well with rows of tanks to see outside the museum. You won’t be disappointed!
  • Amazing museum, especially considering it's free! Really provides a Texas-centric view of military engagements through the years - from Mexico secession all the way through 9/11 and current day. There's an F-16 (?) Trainer that you and your kids can sit in for a photo and a whole lot of tanks, artillery and vehicles too. An all around great experience. The docent was super friendly and accommodating as well - all around, A+ gem that I never knew existed even as a 15 year Austin resident.
