The Buckhorn Museum:
The Buckhorn Museum features wildlife from all over the world, including fish from the seven seas, animals from every continent, and strange animal oddities that have been collected for over 100 years! Our exhibit halls are comprised of over 520 species of wildlife—many of which are record holders. The Buckhorn’s most prized record holder is the famous ‘78 Point Buck’. This impressive rack was sold to the saloon owner himself, Albert Friedrich, for a mere $100 dollars back in 1890. Other amazing specimens include a record 1,056-pound black marlin and a 10,000-year-old pre-historic Irish elk.

The Texas Ranger Museum
This world-class Texas Ranger exhibit offers the public the chance to see priceless historical artifacts that span more than a century of Ranger history. Notable Texas Rangers exhibited in the collection include Ray Martinez, Joaquin Jackson, John B. Armstrong, and Frank Hamer.
