I have been living here in San Antonio for almost 10 years and it marked the first time that I had visited the Buckhorn. The incredible amount and variety of animals mounted on the wall is what I will always remember about the visit, as there was quite a bit to see, although at first I thought the price of admission was fairly steep ($18.00 a person I believe). I would recommend setting aside a few hours to take in all of the exhibits if you decide to visit. I took a few other photos in here that I will be posting over the next few days (although I don't feel it is worthy of an entire weekly series like Sea World San Antonio was).
The Buckhorn Saloon
My favorite bits from this photo are:
- The elephant above the "Five Museums in One" sign
- The pair of jackalopes above the "Bud" sign (I've always been a jackalope fan!)
- The pair deer with interlocked antlers near the "Texas Hall" sign
If you are so inclined, please feel free to leave any comments or feedback.
