Welcome to the Sam Houston Memorial Museum. We are a fifteen acre complex located on the site of the homestead of General Sam Houston.  We are part of Sam Houston State University, and dedication to preserving the memory of Sam Houston (1793-1863) and his times. 

Planning your visit? Our Museum is a combination of historic buildings, beautiful grounds, and traditional museum gallery-style buildings.  Wear comfortable shoes, plan to walk, and bring your camera! Planning to bring a large group? Call ahead and make a reservation!
Museum Store Centrally located on the Museum grounds, the Wigwam Neosho is a great place to pick up inexpensive Texas gifts for you or a loved one. Air-conditioning, restrooms, chicken feed, and water are all available here as well!
