We had to leave too soon, but I really enjoyed seeing everything I was able to see. I adore history, especially Texas history and this is definitely the place to go to get educated on Texas and Sam Houston, a key player in our Texas history.
Wonderful place for children to walk the grounds and experience life in the 1800's. There are several buildings from throughout Houston's life such as his law office, his homestead house, and the house he died in. All are set up with furniture and items from his life. The grounds are beautifully kept, and the duck pond is a great place... 更多

Spent the night in Huntsville, decided to visit on the way out. Grounds are free, parking easy, Excellent display of dwellings where family lived and how they lived. Kids will love all the ducks, chickens and roosters walking freely around the grounds. Docents were friendly and informative.

We went through the park behind the museum. It was so nice and we enjoyed it so much. Buy some chicken feed and feed the wildlife. It was so interesting and so beautiful. There were some baby geese and chickens.
All the houses that Sam Houston lived in are so cool. My kids loved looking at each one and taking pictures by them. Definitely some cool photo ops. There are a few audio parts of the tour that are cool. The grounds are very pretty.
