  • Cool little museum and monument. A nice walk as part of several buildings and statues in Gonzales. The sure if the Come and Take it Canon. Rangers on site.
  • Lovely little museum, free to enter, with some interesting artefacts and photos of Gonzales and the surrounding area. And yes, the actual "come and take it" cannon is here; it's much smaller than you probably think it is. And I have to say I've never understood it being a point of pride to have kept an item loaned to you and then to act like bullies about it, but then there's quite a lot about Texas history that I don't understand. The rights and wrongs of the cannon aside, this is a fun place to visit and you'll learn something new, almost for sure.
