Although small, they do have one of the aircraft that shuttle astronauts used for landing practice.

Texas Air and Space Museum

Small museum, but interesting history if you get a good tour guide. They are looking to relocate to a larger facility, and still working to raise the cash. Donations requested, but no set admission fee.

The DC-3 (N34) at the museum is on the National Register of Historic Places, one of only three "places" on the Register that can move around. The museum is also home to one of the Space Shuttle landing trainers.
