WACO, TX — The Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum is offering Texas Ranger Talks this summer.

Every other Saturday through July and August the museum will invite a real Texas Ranger to talk about their daily lives.

Usually, the museum offers the talks in the spring, but there were so many requests to bring back the idea they chose to offer it during the summer. The Texas Rangers are the oldest law enforcement in North America. They are compared to other world-famous law enforcement agencies such as the FBI, Scotland Yard and the Royal Canadian Mounted police.

Visitors that come to one of these Texas Ranger talks will have an open dialogue, so any questions that comes to mind is encouraged to ask.

"It's a great way for our visitors to ask questions, even take a photo with a Ranger while they're here. And it's no additional charge on those days to come in and listen," said Christine Rothenbush, marketing and development specialist. "It's a really great opportunity to learn first-hand from the real-life people that create this history and what they did."

Dates and times for the Texas Ranger Talks are July 6, July 20, Aug. 3 and Aug. 17. On each of those days, there will be discussions at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. To see the Rangers in person, all it costs is the price of admission.
