This was the home of Susannah Dickinson - who survived the Alamo - before this visit I thought that there were no survivors of this event but evidently the women, children and at least one slave were not killed by the Mexicans

This is a charming and well presented museum it is only open Wednesday to Sunday. The front door maybe a bit stiff giving the impression of being closed. But persevere it is well worth the visit. The staff are knowledgeable and really helpful.

My son wanted to ride the Metro Rail and it's last stop headed south is right at these museums! The staff was super helpful and attentive. The exhibits were interesting. Small and stress free. We learned a lot!

A must do for all Texas people and visitors! This is a tiny place, but very humbling for her role in history. Listen and learn how someone dealt with being thrust into history. Parking can be a bear.

It's right next door to the O Henry Museum, and I'd recommend visiting both at the same time. Like the O Henry Museum, it's small but has interesting details. Worth doing, as long as you have the appropriate expectations.

Susannha Dickinson survived the Alamo, a life of "interesting" relationships and finally ended up in this little gem of a house right next door to the O'Henry House. Do them both in about one hour combined to get a feel of late 19th century life...More
