The Grace is an amazingly beautiful historic building. The art work and kids play area have a little of everything for the entire family.

We were surprised at the quality of exhibits at the Grace. For a small museum, there is much to see and do. Great for all ages. Definitely a must see in Abilene.

Get your culture-on and learn a thing or two about Texas history, art and photography. A lot of care and dedication by museum curators provides for a nice break from the Texas heat. Enjoyed our quick visit.

Art exhibits, evening movies under the stars, beautifully refurbished to reveal how people left the train station to stay at the Grace Hotel; today it is a museum!
