No longer in Granbury. Portions relocated to Glen Rose, Texas. Due to lack of support from local officials, private and public businesses, this organization was forced to close in early 2014. They did leave behind their old building pieces of two airplanes that were donated by other entities but again a noticible lack of interest and local officials support caused... More

We were running late but saw that it was closing at 4:00. Got there at 3:30 and it was closed. Also Google maps was wrong. "601" is suppose to be on the left but it was on the right, just after Iron Horse B&B and a city park. No sign in road but look for big metal building.

I "borrowed" the title The Real Deal from another reviewer, but this museum is exactly that. The building is subpar and one can quickly assess that it needs money for existing displays, but the donated items are plentiful and amazing. This museum will break your heart because it brings to life the realities of war. There is an original telegram... More

This is a small museum with a lot of artifacts from many different wars. There were two older gentlemen working there who were extremely nice and were more than happy to answer any questions we had. If you get a chance it's definitely worth stopping by.

The U.S. Veterans Museum contained artifacts from all of the wars, even the Confederate War. Granbury was definitely part of the south and a number of nearby towns, as well as Granbury, were named for Confederate officers. The volunteer at the museum was very nice and cared deeply about the museum. If you have an interest in history or the... More

staffed by volunteers, and filled with items for anyone with an interest in military history from the distant past until the present day. this is the real deal, a great place to visit. The local police and fire service, as well as the navy are also well represented in a very respectful manner.

For a small town and new museum it's rather good and I would encourage everyone that goes to Granbury to visit. The staff was very helpful with lots of information.

This museum is really a work in progress. They have a huge number of artifacts but lack the space or the volunteers to really organize the displays. This is one of those museums that is probably operating on a shoestring. We had a wonderful docent who is a retired Air Force LTC as our guide and we truly enjoyed our... More
