We were surprised that the museum was open considering that the school was closed for Thanksgiving holidays. Includes two short videos. The 2 students that were working there were as helpful as they could be; although they were not docents. Lovely visit.

It's like the Alamo in that it's smaller than you think and none of it is original. The fort isn't even in it's original location. Really not much to see.

Small, quiet museum on campus. Shows how the fort looked in the early days before it was moved to campus. Explains all the history surrounding the fort and the town of Nacogdoches.
