The Sam Houston Museum is near Sam Houston University. If your children are older, you can also tour campus and the Museum. There is some walking involved, so go when the weather is favorable. There is an indoor museum with artifacts about Sam Houston and Texas History, but there are also house structures on the property that you may walk to and view. The houses are decorated on the inside, but doorways are blocked off by glass so you may only glimpse inside. Each doorway has a button you may push for information about that room. There is a small store where you may buy books and small items about pioneer days.
