After touring this museum, I am surprised there were not more movies produced about the war between Mexico and Texas and later, the U.S. there is a lot of reading in this self-guided museum, but everything you ever wanted to know about the major wars...More

Visited here on my own on a little tour I planned whilst staying with some relatives in burnet. Really great atmosphere and really well set out. Saw and read some things I had no idea about. Happy days!

I had a wonderful time at this very well designed military museum that features WWII. It includes an awesome tank display of over two dozen tanks and armored vehicles, including a Germany half-track. This museum was the highlight of my Austin visit.

This is a free museum on site at Camp Mabry. It’s located across the street from the lodging, which is convenient if you’re staying on base. (As a side, I don’t particularly recommend lodging on base unless you’re just looking for a dirt cheap motel)...More

It's an incredible museum with an understated history. The 36th *definitely* did their part and the museum staff has done its part telling the tale from the Alamo in 1836 through Iraq and Afghanistan. Get into this museum and you'll be glad you did.

It is free but the value for your commitment is enormous. A price to pay - you have to introduce yourself at the checkpoint and show your driver license. Inside it is a great collection of US (Texas leveraged) exhibits. That was the place where...More

The museum is great. It covers the history of the 36th National Guard.The section I enjoyed most was the Civil War especially the Confederate uniforms. The outside tank park is cool as well. The staff are lovely.
