The lady behind the front desk was friendly and knowledgeable. A gentleman administrator who was taking care of items in buildings and maybe photographing was also very friendly and helpful. The gift shop employee was okay but not outgoing like the other two. We loved the fact that you have Museum cats. The exhibits seem well-tended and researched. We learned a lot, supplemented by the two helpful employees. We were pleased that we chose to come to Huntsville instead of downtown Houston on Spring Break.

This museum was very good. Not only was the main museum filled with lots of pictures and artifacts, but there were also several houses that Sam Houston lived in that have been moved to the museum grounds. The Trading Post that Sam Houston and his wife ran has been turned into a Gift Shop. You could easily spend several hours at this museum.

This place is pretty cool. Expect to do a little walking. There are a couple of small hills to climb, but not too steep. There are demonstrations for people to view that are excellent for children, especially school aged ones.

Really enjoy learning local history so this was a great place to visit. Many out buildings as well as the main museum have lots of interesting artifacts and items related to Sam Houston and the area. Some buildings have looped vocal recordings about the Sam Houston history, and presenters in period clothing performing chores or activities of the time. You'll definitely get your exercise! Lots of o

About Sam Houston Memorial Museum

It's a common misconception that the city of Houston is named after the Houston Rockets basketball team. The truth is far stranger. The city is actually named in honor of Sam Houston, a key player in Texas's bid for statehood. The Lone Star State as we know it today would not have been possible if Houston hadn't led the Texas Revolution and subsequently assumed office as the Republic of Texas's first and third president.

Houston—both the city and the man—is the focus of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum. Located on 15 acres of the leader's own estate, the sprawling museum lets visitors learn about Houston's life and accomplishments via artifacts, manuscripts, and even buildings he frequented. Houston's hunting lodge along with the Steamboat House have been moved to the museum grounds from their original locations, and a replica of his kitchen was hand-built with period tools on the same spot as the original. In the rotunda building, visitors can examine personal effects and articles of clothing to get a feel for what Houston was like as a person. Though the museum is open six days a week year-round, the summer months are perhaps the best time to visit, as the museum offers free tours twice daily with paid admission.
