Showcasing more than 200 various Texas Ranger artifacts such as badge, revolvers, handguns, shotguns, photographs, and tons more.

Buckhorn Saloon and Museum

The Buckhorn Saloon features an amazing collection of wildlife with the exhibit halls comprised of over 520 species of wildlife. The saloon was established by Albert Friedrich who had the genius idea of exchanging liquor for horns or antlers since most people who came through town usually didn't have much money. The collection began to grow to its state today in which it holds the largest collection of antlers and horns, which is why they now call it the Buckhorn Hall of Horns. In 1956, Lone Star Brewery of San Antonio took over ownership of the saloon and built it to fit the original bar that would later be used as their sampling room. In 1996, Stroh's Brewing Company invested in the historical collection and moved the entire exotic animal collection and the original cherry-wood bar into to a better downtown San Antonio location.
