The Texas Heritage Museum

The mission of the Texas Heritage Museum is to explore Texas and Texans during wartime and how those experiences affect us today. The museum is free and open to the public. The historical artifacts within the museum galleries and collection serve as tangible evidence of historical events while the accompanying text provides context to Texas history. Considerable thought and research goes into the galleries before they are displayed, and exhibits continue to change to present fresh topics and perspectives. Whether in conjunction with classes or standing alone, students and visitors are able to learn Texas history from touring the facilities.  The museum houses over 16,000 artifacts from the 1830s to the present and currently has these major exhibits: "Texas Revolution and Republic", "The Blue and Gray Gallery"; "Texans at War 1939-1945"; "The Vietnam War and Texans' Involvement", and a Weapons Gallery whose focus is World War I. There is also gallery space for temporary and traveling exhibits. The museum averages around 3,000 - 4,000 visitors a year and provides a hands on experience to visitors and students on Texas military history. Click here
