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.

I was happy to walk and read thru the Joseph and Susanna Dickinson Hannig museum in Austin. Staff was available, and not overly assisting. Fun photo op inside, for the ladies.

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

Well preserved historic house from the 1860s showcasing the life of a remarkable frontierswoman known as the "Messenger of the Alamo". Gives the visitor an insight into that period of history. We had our caricatures done by Lisa. The museum has free admission and is...More

This was the home of Susannah Dickinson - who survived the Alamo - before this visit I thought that there were no survivors of this event but evidently the women, children and at least one slave were not killed by the Mexicans

This is a charming and well presented museum it is only open Wednesday to Sunday. The front door maybe a bit stiff giving the impression of being closed. But persevere it is well worth the visit. The staff are knowledgeable and really helpful.

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!
