Star of the Republic Museum reviews
History is packed into a small building. There is much more in the building than you might expect from outside so do go into the building. The museum has history exhibits from before through Texas..... more »
Two floors of Texas exhibits include fun activities for children and adults. History, artifacts, and time line are well done. There is a short introductory movie. more »
Every Texan should make the pilgrimage to the birthplace of the Republic. As with the US, the founding fathers of Texas put their lives on the line when they declared Independence from Mexico. And you can see where it all went down right here! A fantastic experience, a wonderful museum and a beautiful park. Highly recommended!
This is a fun museum. If you want the back story on Texas becoming a nation with Washington as it's capital, this is it! We spent hours here and loved every minute of it.
