A Must-See, the Museum of the Big Bend

If you're traveling near Big Bend, Alpine, Fort Davis, Marathon, Marfa, you owe it to yourself to include a visit to the Museum of the Big Bend on the campus of Sul Ross State University in Alpine.  Moved to its original location on campus and completely restored, renovated and upgraded a few years ago, it is truly one of the best small museums in the state.  The collection and exhibitions provide a great introduction to the entire Far West Texas region.  The current special exhibition is an excellent one--on historic Texas Maps!
