  • One of my favorite museums. Only $5 to enter. It's got a lot of neat artifacts, including the cannon that began the Texas Revolution. The curator is knowledgeable, and did a good job telling the story of the recovery of the cannon. There are many very neat artifacts, but the museum isn't so big that you can't see everything. It's the perfect size for me. Good information. Some of it can be more logically/sequentially presented. The only real complaint is the collection of dolls is creepy. Almost made me give it a 4 star review.
  • We have wanted to visit Gonzalez for decades. WHY did we wait so long!?!? What a wonderful community, with a heroic heritage! Texas wouldn't have become the amazing Republic, and the proud, tenacious State that it is, without the selfless pioneers that gave everything they had, including their lives, to the dream of Freedom! The Museum and historic sites throughout the area bring the memory of those events to life. From the first shot of the "Come and Take It" cannon, to the volunteers riding to their deaths in defense of the Alamo, to the last shots fired by Gonzalez men at San Jacinto, Texas will forever be grateful to these HEROES!!!
