This former Post Office, bank building now holds a nice little museum. Currant exhiibt is World War I / II. Uses an interactive iPad after docent takes you around a little bit. Something nice to do on a cold, windy day.

We stopped here as we had been wanting to come for a long while and we were not disappointed There were several exhibits regarding both early Texas and early McKinney history. The 20 minute documentary entitled "Once A Nation" was very well done.

Local gentlemen who were Vietnam vets have put together an amazingly extensive exhibit. Lots of personal "memorabilia" -- weapons, photos, uniforms, etc. Plus they have included a simulated "Hanoi Hilton" so that visitors can understand what it was like to be caged as the POWs...More
