Description
Texas Ranger Museum Photos (14)

Go back in time in San Antonio to the days of the Old West and see what it was like to be a real Texas Ranger capturing fugitives at the Texas Ranger Museum! Just two blocks from the Alamo, the Museum was established in 2006 as an addition to the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum. Showcasing more than 200 various Texas Ranger artifacts such as badge, revolvers, handguns, shotguns, photographs, and tons more.

Guests here will get a glimpse into the past and how it was to be a Texas Ranger at the turn of the century. The most notable Texas Rangers you'll get to learn more about are:

  • John B. Armstrong - Remembered for his role in the pursuit and capture of famous gunfighter John Hardin.
  • Frank Hamer - Known for his leadership in 1934 for tracking down and killing the criminal duo Bonnie & Clyde.
  • Ray Martinez - Officer McCoy shot and killed sniper Charles Whitman in 1966.

In addition to a glimpse into the past of famous rangers in the state, the Texas Ranger Museum is home to an exciting Bonnie and Clyde exhibit that is complete with the couple's getaway car, a '34 Ford Deluxe; who spent over two years running from Texas Rangers and law enforcement. Guests here will also get to journey through "Ranger Town", a replication of old-time San Antonio with a jail cell, newspaper office, blacksmith shop, and you can even practice your shooting skills at the Toepperwein Shooting Gallery.

For an authentic insight into the past of Texas Rangers, be sure to stop by this elaborate museum! Book your San Antonio vacation package today for the best deals and an easy way to plan your trip.

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.
