Nice to enjoy various exhibits in one area. Musical, historical and some art. Mostly documents and some visual. Has Stevie Ray Vaughn exhibit, slave exhibits and aerospace and plane exhibits. Schools visit alot during the week. Three floors of exhibits and IMAX section is nice.

If you want to know more about Texas must visit this museum. We enjoyed all the history and movies they play. The building is beautiful starting with the big star. A must see in Austin.

Since this place has been remodeled I have seen two movies here. It is a visual and audio experience. 3-D and 4-D viewing. Every seat is a good seat. Also, they now have their own popcorn and sodas.
