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 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.
