We love this place so much we joined it and make annual contributions. It has great permanent collections and wonderful, thoughtful rotating exhibits. Worth a special trip.

Bell County Museum is a treasure amongst Texas museums! They host different traveling exhibits every 2-3 months, monthly family programs, multicultural events (Day of the Dead, Dance Theater of Harlem, Native American Day), and it is all FREE! Free admission, friendly staff..a must go!
