As said in the photo above, the Texas Rangers were “the most elite law enforcement in Texas history.”
The Texas Ranger Museum is two blocks away from the Alamo and an easy walk with the kids. We saw a man riding a bike with a large sign on the back of the bike advertising the Buckhorn Museum and Texas Ranger Museum at the Alamo. The sign advertised a discount for the museum if you went to the man for more information. Find the man on the bike! I’m not sure how much the discount is but we wish we had gotten it. You get both museums for the price of the one admission but the admission was pricey - 12 and over are considered an adult (12 and under are free) - for the three of us it cost $100 (that’s with the three youngest kids being free).
I’m glad we went regardless of the price though. One of Les’ grandfathers was a Texas Ranger. We were really hoping we could see a picture of him or at the very least find his grandfather’s name displayed somewhere in the museum...but we didn’t.
There are many display cases filled with memorabilia as well as photos and art work in the Texas Ranger Museum. It also has a mock up old Western town that the kids can roam through and pretend they are in the Wild West. The Buckhorn museum is filled with all sorts of stuff which reminds me a little bit of a Ripley’s Museum.
