Frontier Times Museum
Those looking for a little diversion while in town can visit the Frontier Times Museum (510 13th St., 830/796-3864, www.frontiertimesmuseum.org, 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Mon.–Sat., $5 adults, $3 seniors, $1 children 6–17). This is a decidedly old-school museum, so don’t expect interactive, hands-on exhibits; instead, you’ll find an amazing collection of random stuff deemed important by townspeople since 1933.
Western relics abound, including old household items, photos, farming equipment and rodeo memorabilia, as well as an eclectic mix of “exotic” items from the Orient and Europe, such as rare bells, plates, and a gong from the Ming Dynasty. The museum also includes a gallery of Western art.
