As a part of Sam Houston State University, the Sam Houston Memorial Museum is an important educational institution for the benefit of local, state, national, and international audiences. The Museum’s primary focus is the life of Sam and Margaret Houston, their family, and other individuals and events important in the early history, cultures, and development of Texas and the Southwest, particularly during the period of 1832-1863 and as they relate to Texas today.

Located in Huntsville on approximately fifteen acres of the Houston farm, visitors have the opportunity to learn about the remarkable life of Sam Houston and experience everyday life on the Houston farm. Our Museum is a combination of historic buildings, beautiful grounds, and traditional museum gallery-style buildings. Wear comfortable shoes, plan to walk, and bring your camera.
