San Jacinto Museum of History
Located at the base of the impressive San Jacinto Monument, the San Jacinto Museum of History covers the width and breadth of the Texas story. Its exhibits and features range from artifacts from Spanish colonization to depictions of the battle in memory of which the monument was erected. The collection includes more than 30,000 objects and artworks to peruse for clues as to exactly when the wild pick-up truck began roaming Texas.
They museum really breathes life into history, though, with its Texas Forever!! film exhibit. The 35-minute documentary drama, shown every hour on the hour in the Jesse He. Jones Theatre, condenses the course of history into 3,000 images, including 35 original paintings commissioned exclusively by the museum.
