Sam Houston Memorial Museum

Welcome to the Sam Houston Memorial Museum!

Update: June 1, 2021

We are dedicated to preserving the memory of Sam Houston and his times on an approximately fifteen-acre complex located on the site of the homestead of General Houston.

One thing staff has noticed more and more, visitors are relying on some sort of map app on their phone to get to the museum causing some confusion over where to park and start your visit. There are three locations you can check-in, pay admission and grab a museum map:

Limited parking is available by the Sam Houston Memorial Museum and Wigwam Neosho Museum Store while there is plenty of parking available at the Katy & E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center. You are welcome to park either inside the museum grounds, if places are available, or at the Education Center – just keep in mind that our museum grounds are spread out over fifteen acres and there will be a bit of walking!

During the week (Tuesday - Friday) between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., a staff member from our education department will be on the grounds to answer any visitor questions.
