Buckhorn Saloon And Museum - Review

This is place for rough and tough ready to rumble dudes, at least it used to be, and the reputation sort of stuck around even though it’s just a really cool tourist attraction here. Back in the day (not sure when) Friedrich started the tradition of swapping animal heads or horns from hunters in exchange for a drink. As this collection grew, a collection of firearms was also added.

Also added was the Texas Ranger Museum featuring a lot the Division’s artefacts including handguns, shotguns, badges, and photographs. And there’s Native American art. And cowboy culture exhibits. And it used to be frequented by Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders – some even claim he recruited them here. Yeah, the place is the epitome of dude cool. Great food, great conversation and a really great atmosphere, do not miss a chance to dine here.

Buckhorn Saloon And Museum, San Antonio Reviews

  • Pretty neat place to visit if you have an interest in the Texas Rangers history. The museum was quite interesting and lengthy, I was skeptical by looking at size of the building and then shelling out 20 bucks per ticket to see the museum but I have to say I was surprised and it was well worth it. I recommend if you are there in the summer to go during the lunch hour, it makes for a great place to cool off and is less crowded. It has an awesome bar setting if you are into having a beer or drink saloon style. The only reason for a four star is that the food was just OK, similar to "concession stand" style food.

  • This place was so awesome! Me and my father are from Dallas and went to San Antonio for the weekend to enjoy some time together as he has open heart surgery coming up. We both love history in love museums, the cool thing about this specific place is that it's not only a game Museum of different animals from all around the world, but it's also Texas Rangers Museum ( and not the baseball team but the state police force) so they have everything from awesome mounts of game around the world, to freak animals that were born with two heads and there was even a goat that was born with one eye ( a cyclops). It's funny that the woman who was the manager at the hotel we stayed at was a little bit younger then I am, I am in my early 30s and she seemed to be in her early to mid-20s, when we asked what good museums to visit she specifically said that this one wasn't a good one and we probably wouldn't enjoy it... Boy was she wrong! For anyone who loves history, especially Texas history this is a super cool place to go, you will see things that you've never seen it will probably never see again in your life. And the coolest part is it's all located inside of the oldest Saloon in Texas which is 130 years old! I can't tell you enough how awesome this place truly is, I would recommend it to a single person, a couple, a family or even a group visiting town for a work trip looking for something to do! Don't miss out on this awesome place and adventure, they even have a restaurant and a bar so if you're hungry or thirsty before you take the tour, you can grab yourself something to eat and after you finish if you have a drink they allow you to carry it around with you in the Museum. So whether you grab something to eat before or after your visit to the museum, there is some great food and I recommend you grab a bite to eat and try it out! Five stars easily, all the way!

  • I gave it two stars as I am a vegetarian who doesn't like to see dead hanging animals on the walls. Despite this, which of course is not a reflection of the bar, but rather my own basis. The beer was cold, refreshingly good and well priced. We came late in the evening and the kitchen was closed so we couldn't eat. It would have been nice if the resturant portion of the bar was open. Neat place if you like to see animal wall hangings.... but not if you are like me and thinks its rather cruel.

  • Absolutely amazing place. If you love Texas history then you'll love this place. It's two museums in one: the Buckhorn Saloon, which has plenty of animals and other historical exhibits to see, and the Texas Ranger museum, which showcases the history of the Texas Rangers with plenty of interesting artifacts and information. Tickets are reasonably priced, especially if you can find a coupon in one of the San Antonio travel brochures. Once you get your ticket you can go in and out as you please, as long as you keep your receipt. With your ticket you also get 10% off a meal at the restaurant in the museum. All in all, a great deal!

  • Very nice rustic interior definitely has that Old West vibe. Lots of cool stuffed animals and many mounts with large horns. The back of the saloon has a shooting gallery and it only cost a dollar. It is setup with interactive targets similar to Bass Pro shops shooting gallery. They even have a black bear head mounted that was killed in Kerrville back in the 1800's.
