    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Texas History Museum is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Texas' rich heritage. It is located in the 1865 Haywood House at the corner of Dallas and Market streets. Its quite a small museum which has has one of the finest collections of Texana including maps, banknotes and books. There is also the Waldseemukller map which is believed to be the first map showing land that became Texas, but it walks you through a timeline of discovery which began only 21 years after Columbus arrived.
