San Jacinto Monument And Museum Of History
Located in the battlefield where Texas gained its independence from Mexico, the museum, at the base of the San Jacinto Monument, holds one of the largest collections of Texas art, artifacts and history. It was created as a steward of history—to promote friendship between Texas, Mexico, Spain, France and Latin America.
