This museum is very informative about the history of Abilene and Texas! It was recently remodeled as well, and it looks great!

Ever wondered what it was like to live in the Wild West? Apparently it wasn't all drinking whiskey while watching can-can dancers and gunfights in the street all the time-- living in Texas in the 19th century was hard work, and you'll learn all about it here at this interactive, hands-on museum.
