Buckhorn Saloon and Museum : Enter Now to Win Free Tickets!


It’s that time again where we offer you the chance to win your free tickets to great Texas adventures!  Right now we are offering 9 pairs of tickets to the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum in San Antonio, TX

Conveniently located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, just two blocks from The Alamo and a block from the Riverwalk, a visit to Buckhorn Saloon and Museum provides you with the perfect starting point for a day of exploration of the city.

The museum’s lure is in part due to its intriguing origins.  In 1881, Seventeen-year-old Albert Friedrich, a bartender and bellhop at the Southern Hotel on Main Plaza in downtown San Antonio decided to roll up his entrepreneurial sleeves and start a saloon across the street.

After learning that many patrons passing through couldn’t afford to purchase a drink by conventional means at The Buckhorn Saloon, Albert decided to start trading horns and antlers in exchange for his beverages.  His collection grew to become one of the world’s largest and most unique collections of horns and antlers.

Today the museum – one of the oldest in the state – features wildlife from all across the globe, including fish from the seven seas and animals from every continent.  The halls of the museum comprise over 520 species of wildlife – many of which are record holders, including a 1,056 pound black marlin and a 10,000 year old pre-historic Irish elk.  Visitors of all ages continue to visit year after year and marvel at one of the most elaborate collection of animals in the world!
