Museum Good - Cafe Not Good – Went here for a quick lunch while downtown. Nothing but quick. It took 40 minutes for a BLT and a chili dog and the place was not that busy. As for the food when it came...it was okay but 40 minutes!!!

Hunters still gather here to witness history and the large selection of game. – Museum's History
In 1881, Albert Friedrich opened a saloon in town and offered this trade to patrons: a beer or a shot of whiskey for a pair of horns or antlers. That's how the museum got started. The saloon prospered and grew in fame, attracting regulars like Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders.

What You'll See Today
The museum grew over the years, beginning with a Wild West theme and expanding to include game from around the world. The collection of horns and antlers (including a world-record 78-point buck) is the country's largest. Gun buffs will enjoy the antique arsenal and sharpshooter feature. Upstairs, visitors travel through an African safari, on to Asia, then Alaska. A taxidermist's dream, the museum also boasts an ocean's worth of sea life, with more than 200 fish. Many animals are on the floor, uncased, where you can look them in the eye.

WOW – I recently visited San Antonio. This is a great place to take your family, it has it all. A wonderful museum and a great cafe! The museum is packed full of interesting Texas History and then we ate at the cafe and the food was wonderful. (I admit I was surprised.) THe waitess was on top of it the whole time. If you go to San ANtonio make time to visit the Buckhorn! You will enjoy it!
