I like historical places, It's free and on a cool sunny day in January I enjoyed the short trip to Fort Phantom Hill. Recommend you visit Frontier Texas first to learn the history of West Texas and the purpose of the forts the go and walk in the history of this fort, I did the reverse and still enjoyed it. I was the only one there and it was a great experience.

We took our 6 year old to visit and were surprised by this gem! It was the highlight of our day trip! We had so much fun in the children's museum area. My daughter played for over an hour. She especially LOVED the stage and props! It had educational items for children as well. After finally coaxing our daughter to leave, we checked out the art and museum part. It was very well put together. The boot museum was especially fascinating. I highly recommend checking out The Grace Museum.

The NCCIL was much more than the typical children's museum I might have expected; as a fan of fine book illustration, I was thrilled to see the excellent level of curation, the presentation of book history, and the loving preservation of amazing artifacts. I only wish it were closer so I could visit more of their special exhibitions and spring festival!
