The Walker Education Center is an exhibit and information center, part of the Sam Houston Memorial Museum Complex. It is along 19th Street on the southwest corner of the museum grounds, west of the main campus.

The $1.8 million, 18,500 square-foot center houses an exhibit gallery, auditorium, a Sam Houston and Texas History library, and artifact room.

The facility was built as a result of the General Sam Houston Bicentennial celebration in honor of General Sam Houston's 200th birthday on March 2, 1993.

Prior to use by the museum this land was used for other purposes, including barracks for families of veterans, the Pritchett Field House, and the original home of the McAdams Tennis Center.
