Traveling to Abilene Texas
Step back in time and take a walk through the wild Texas frontier at Frontier Texas!, one of Abilene’s most popular attractions. The museum features full-size holographic figures of the people who lived and died on the frontier from 1780 to 1880. You’ll witness buffalo stampedes, shoot-outs and wolf attacks, and you’ll come face-to-face with cowboys and Comanche Indian warriors.
For another look at life on the frontier, visit the Buffalo Gap Historic Village, with 21 buildings dating to the period 1870 to 1920.
Enter another era, as you tour historic downtown with its collection of 1920s and ’30s art deco buildings, including the Paramount Theatre. Also visit the Grace Museum complex, which includes a children’s museum and museums of art and history.
World War II history buffs may enjoy the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum. The Abilene Zoo is a top attraction and a favorite for families.
