From June 1st until Aug. 31st, the Sam Houston Memorial Museum’s education department offers guided tours Tuesday thru Friday at 10 AM and 2 PM for the public.
Tours begin at the Katy & E. Don Walker, Sr., Education Center with a short video, then move out to the historic grounds, and end at the main museum. Large groups are welcomed as well by advanced registration.
On the museum grounds, visitors can see how Gen. Sam Houston and his family lived by exploring his Steamboat House, the Woodland Home Houston built himself; Houston’s law office, and the Bear Bend Cabin where Houston would stay when he frequently hunted.
Among the features of these historic residences are Houston family home furniture and clothing, a working kitchen, and a restored and rebuilt period kitchen.
The grounds also include a walking trail, a blacksmith shop, and a museum shop named Wigwam Neosho after the trading post he owned and operated.
