If you are doing genealogical or historical research on any topic relating to Texas history, the Texas Collection is a "must" stop. The staff are very helpful and the extent of the collection is substantial. If the research relates to Texas Baptist history, this is THE place to do research. The Collection has archival restrictions--you must lock up everything but paper and writing implements or a computer--but the lockers are easy to access from the main research area.

The Texas Collection houses so many things that it would be impossible to name them. They have everything from the sublime to the ridiculous but all if historical in someway. Many treasures are in this collection.

Family friendly, very interesting. I believe only open during the week so check first. Parking is not easy-park near Sid Richardson-in visitors lot.

Every Texan should visit this library. Actually, you need to plan several visits to take it all in. It is well maintained and a great collection

The Texas Collection was once saved from fire by students at Baylor University. It features artwork and a ton of Texas history!
