For pure Texas kitsch, it’s hard to beat a museum you can browse with a cold brew in hand. Stop by the bar for a longneck, cocktail, or root beer on your way to check out the extensive collection of taxidermied wild animals from all over the globe in the Hall of Horns, or the Old West memorabilia displayed at the Texas Ranger Museum. Founded in 1890 by a bellhop from the Southern Hotel on Main Plaza, the Buckhorn also houses other quirky exhibits as well as a small cafe and a gift shop featuring tons of Texana and souvenirs.
