  • We hosted an event for the community and Sarah was amazing! A gracious and accommodating host! Her passion and experience really showed and I'm thankful for a smooth experience. Highly recommend for your events, big or small!
  • This tour was so much fun. It was very interesting especially with our guide that I think was Ben. He was so knowledgeable & entertaining. I could have listened to him for several more hours but I would have missed the bus back to Houston LOL. If someone from the Museum sees this please tell him we really enjoyed his knowledge especially in the Scouts area. I would go back any time. Lots of history & art!!!!
