"Lots of animals"

The museum part of the Buckhorn Saloon is filled with animals.  Animals from all over the world.  I was surprised to find a room dedicated entirely to ocean life!  This museum is more like a Natural History Museum, but there are definitely Texas influences that make it unique.  A room with albino and unnatural animals (two-headed cow), locked horns on deers, unusual horn growths on deers, and longhorn themed chairs are some of the special things you will see.  It is definitely a Texas experience that you will enjoy in this museum.

I received a complimentary visit to the Buckhorn Museum as part of the "Race to the Alamo", hosted by the San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau.  http://alamo.visitsanantonio.com/race/ I received no other compensation and all opinions in this review are my own.

"You can choose to eat and/or visit the museum"

We ate at the Buckhorn, although it wasn't as "affordable" as we'd hoped.  Kids' meals (entree, fries, drink) were $5.99; 1/2 lb burgers w/ fries $8.49.

We did not go to the museum because of the price.  The Buckhorn Museum and Texas Ranger Museum have combined admission of $20 for adults and $14 for kids (3-?).  The estimate that it will take just over 2 hours to go through both museums.  You get a $1/ticket discount if you eat in the saloon.
