This small Museum was quiet but informational. With no prior knowledge of Susanna Hannig, I followed her interesting story of being a survivor of the Alamo, and her consequential relationships. I recommend stopping by if in Austin.
It's interesting that it's here, and Hannig had a colorful life quite apart from surviving the Alamo (she made good in the end, which is always nice) - but really this is just a quick stop. You can do this and O'Henry next door in...More

We were looking for the O. Henry House and walked into the this one.
What a delight. The docent was extremely knowledgable and fun to talk with.
Yes, the house is quite small but it is worth the time to drop in.
My son wanted to ride the Metro Rail and it's last stop headed south is right at these museums! The staff was super helpful and attentive. The exhibits were interesting. Small and stress free. We learned a lot!
This is the original home of Susanna Dickinson one of the few survivors of the Alamo...Interesting photos, memorabilia and an ancestors quilt...Curators gave interesting facts about the family and Susanna....
