LOCATED JUST TWENTY MINUTES from downtown Houston, locals and out-of-towners alike can turn an afternoon day trip into a trip back in time — at the San Jacinto Museum and Battlefield.

Whether you are entertaining guests, chaperoning a field trip, or just spending time with your family, a visit to the museum is an experience to remember.

 

Please note that some GPS systems and maps retain the names Battleground Road and Crosby-Lynchburg Road for what is now called Independence Parkway.
