Riding the Range:

If you are looking for the perfect picture opportunity, please find the saddle and back drop located by the elevator doors (behind the staircase in the Grand Lobby in front of the store). A photo here will make you look as if you are a vaquero riding the Wild Horse Desert of South Texas.

Hands-On in the Park:

This is an opportunity often missed by those who have not spent some quality time in the Museum of South Texas History.
The Will Looney Legacy park offers a chance to prime and pump water (the jug of water for priming is beside the pump) as the pioneers once did. *Note: May not be available starting May 2015 due to construction.

Discovering the Museum Store:

If you are interested in reading about the history or flora and fauna of our area, the books you are looking for are here.
There are also cookbooks and craft kits for those who love to stay busy. Many souvenirs including jewelry, photos, and stuffed toys are also available.

Roping the Steer:

There is a steer in the Grand Lobby that will test your roping skills. *Note: Upon request or time availability.

Eye Spy:

Take some time in the Grand Lobby in front of the store to look for the metal sculptures of native animals found in South Texas. Click here for the pdf. *Note: Upon request or time availability.
