Synopsis
Museums bring us history and they do it better than anything else can. We can see it; sometimes we can even touch it. Museums are real. By looking at the real thing, we can make history our own and not have to rely on anyone else's interpretation of it. At Lone Star museums you can stroll through a human body or sit in the middle of a hurricane, pilot the Space Shuttle, or see a submarine burst through a front lawn. You can create your own dinosaur, glimpse a Picasso original in a jail, see 1,000 artistic toilet seats or a hat made from barbed wire. You don't have to believe the movies or TV or a book, you can go and walk through the actual Alamo in San Antonio. Wonder about how oil was discovered and brought up from the depths of the earth? Visit the Ocean Star Oil Rig Museum in Galveston or the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum in Canyon (see photo at left). At the same place you can examine a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton. In other museums you can see dinosaur tracks, a meteor, firearms from Texas Rangers, World War II airplanes, President Bush's Oval Office, President Johnson's Lincoln, the history of Dr Pepper, space craft, a battleship and an air craft carrier, the window from which Lee Harvey Oswald fired, how Buffalo Soldiers lived, and the best art in the world whether it's Western or Renaissance or contemporary. You want the real thing? Just go visit a museum. Texas Museums of Discovery will guide to all the best museums in the Lone Star State.
