Texas Pioneer Trail Drivers and Rangers Museum, San Antonio

You'll see plenty of horse-related exhibits at the Memorial Hall, located next to the Witte Museum. This museum traces the role of the Texas Rangers on the frontier, with exhibits covering badges to saddlebags.

The museum was created for the 1936 Texas Centennial to showcase the work of the Texas Rangers, which held the distinction as the first law enforcement group in the nation with statewide jurisdiction. A more peaceful side of Texas is explored in the collection housed in the Pioneer Room, dedicated to the hardworking pioneers who settled the Lone Star State. Western art is displayed here as well. Have a look at the statues in front of the museum featuring traildrivers and a ranger; one of the statues was sculpted by Gutzon Borglum, creator of Mount Rushmore.

The museum is open daily 10 AM to 5 PM during summer months, 11 AM to 4 PM at other times of the year. Admission.

Location: 3805 Broadway, Brackenridge Park, San Antonio
(210) 822-9011
