The basics

The Buckhorn Saloon is one of San Antonio’s most historic watering holes and an atmospheric spot to grab a local beer on draft. The saloon and cafe are free to visit, though the two museums charge an entrance fee (both museums on one ticket). The museums are also included in some San Antonio multi-attraction passes, which include admission or discounts to other notable attractions, like SeaWorld, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Natural Bridge Caverns, and the San Antonio Zoo.

Great Overview of Alot Texas
Wonderful exhibits alot of different things to see, really enjoyed. I especially liked the flea circus, just amazing. Alot of history, i liked the audio in different parts as you could look and hear about at same time. sometimes reading all stuff gets too cumbersome and time consuming. very clean. Would love to bring rest of the family to see one day.
