This is a great Military History Museum! It's a true history museum where you read the history on wall plaques and see artifacts displayed in cases. They cover the Civil War, WWI & WWII, Vietnam, etc. A small mention of the War of 1812. A small mention of the current wars in the Middle East. The recipients of the Medal... More

A free history museum on the grounds of Hill College. It is small but well layed out and full of Texas history.

Lots of good Texas History on the campus of Hill College. Most of the items in this place was a collection from a history professor there.

The community and the State of Texas should be very proud of the museum but the gift shop...not so much.

This museum covers Texas military history in various wars. If you are driving past Hillsboro on I-35 and have an hour to spare, the museum is well worth a visit. It is open early (8 AM), too. Just be aware of the speed bumps (not marked at all) in the road leading to the museum.

If you ever wondered about Audie Murphy's roll in WWII that made him famous, you will find out here. The Boy Scout exhibits brought back a few... More

This museum is one of the best history museum's I have been to. A great collection of artifacts from every American war. Full of history for a medium size museum.
