Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and Museum

Texas Rangers Hall of Fame and Museum

The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame & Museum, the official State Hall of Fame for the Texas Rangers Law Enforcement Agency, is conveniently located off I-35 near downtown Waco. The Texas Rangers, the oldest state law enforcement agency, play an important role in solving crimes and apprehending fugitives. The Homer Garrison Museum Gallery focuses on the equipment of the Texas Rangers and places it into historical context — from the early days to the present. The Brownfield and Morris Galleries chronicle the history of Texas Rangers from their founding in 1823 to recently retired officers. The Brownfield Gallery also houses case studies of important Texas Ranger law enforcement investigations such as kidnappings, riots, and the Texarkana Phantom Killer. Visitors can also find such infamous collections as Bonnie and Clyde’s shotguns — confiscated from the "Death Car" after the final shoot-out — and the firearms used by Texas Rangers at the ambush.
