This place is fantastic to learn Texas History. The membership pass is well-worth it, we have the Hacienda level. You can watch nature films for free and get discounts to current films at their IMAX. 3-D films are spectacular!

I'm not sure about others, but if you're from Texas this is a moving tribute to our heritage. I loved the film, the "Alamo" and the history. I've been here with young children, school field trips, visiting relatives and friends. God Bless Texas!
