Austin: Republic of Texas Museum


The Republic of Texas Museum rekindles the Texas Revolution through displays of rare artifacts, including textiles from prominent frontier families. Dioramas made for the 1936 Texas Centennial portray events like the 1836 Battle of San Jacinto, where General Sam Houston defeated Mexican General Santa Anna. Santa Anna’s dueling pistols and cut-glass jewelry box are on display, along with a dining chair captured from his Mexican castle during the 1846 U.S.-Mexico War.
