The display on Nazi Propaganda was very informative. On display were many facts that the average person does not know regarding these historical events. The visuals, films, posters and items very informative, too. The main museum is worth the trip for those seeking information on Texas/Western history. We hope to return soon.
The ground floor is all about how the La Belle and it's captain La Salle made its way from France and how they coped once arrived. The first floor probably had the most historic facts and shows the forming of the Texas community, Texas as a republic and as a state. The last floor shows how the oil modernized Texas and made it boom economically and ends with a quick glance at its current culture, aeronautics contributions and Big Bend reserve.
