The Briscoe-Garner Museum

History buffs gather every year to experience American history firsthand at the Briscoe-Garner Museum, the former home of John Nance Garner himself. This museum takes a look into the lives of two notable Texas politicians, former vice president John Nance “Cactus Jack” Garner and former governor Dolph Briscoe.

Visitors can view everything from handwritten personal documents and vintage photos to get an in-depth look at life in Texas politics in the era of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Plus, it’s free of charge – though donations are welcomed!

Ox Ranch

While Ox Ranch has landed on dozens of network shows for its hunting and fishing experience, this piece of Texas Hill Country modern history also offers its own glimpse to the past as well. Visitors can get inside an authentic World War II Sherman tank to drive around the property – and even fire! While you’re waiting for your turn behind the wheel, explore other unique attractions like cave exploring and 4×4 off-roading. And if you want something a little more low-key, Ox Ranch even has yoga classes and bird watching.
