Love the history behind this landmark, The movie presentation was nice, and the elevator ride to the top of the monument was fun, with great views. I thought the history displays could have been better, and was somewhat disappointed in those.
If you live in Texas or were born here, you must visit this place at least once in your life (and the Alamo, and Washington-on-the-Brazos). Full of history and makes you feel Texan patriotic. The monument is also an amazing marvel.
My family traveled to Houston and did not have this stop in mind before making the trip. We're glad we did and got to see a lot. We didn't take the elevator ride or see the movie and still spent an hour in the museum looking at the paintings and other artifacts. I highly recommend this stop if you have... 更多
This was a very interesting visit. If you don't know a lot about the history of Texas and specifically the battle of San Jacinto spring for the movie; otherwise spring for the ride to the top. The movie is entertaining, but not critical to appreciating the monument. While very interesting, the museum is another area where you can skip if... 更多
The free museum was a little light. You can pay for a special exhibit but we did not. The movie is highly informative and gives you the best understanding of the battle at San Jacinto. Of course kids loved the ride to the top of the monument.
This is a hidden gem of a monument. It's in the middle of nowhere, yet rises 54 stories! The elevator ride to the top was our favorite part, but the museum was also a jewel. Loads of artifacts and stories from early Texas history. Lovely little museum. Wish we would have had time for the hiking trail.
For Texas history buffs, this is a must see monument and battle ground that played decisive role in the battle for Texas Independence. The grounds are pristine and the view from the top is incredible. They have a museum and a theater too. We were limited on time so we chose to only go to the observation deck Parking is... 更多
This State of Texas Park is of federal standards for battlefield signage and interpretation. The Museum in the base of the Monument is the place to start, since the terrain (e.g., the Houston Ship Channel and multiple refineries) has changed since 1836. It's easy to drive to all the significant spots, with parking provided at each. Given Houston's heat, humidity,... 更多
We visited the monument after visiting the Battleship Texas. For me, this was boring. But i'm not from TX, so maybe other people would like it more. The monument itself is nice. It's really tall and you can ride up the elevator and look out around the area. Other than that, there's not much to do or see.
