The Pearce Museum at Navarro College is located on the Corsicana, Texas campus of Navarro College in the Cook Education Center. Three unique and nationally significant collections (Civil War and Texas History, Modern Western Art and Prehistoric Central Texas) are interpreted in interactive, visitor-friendly galleries. The American Civil War gallery interprets our Nation's bloodiest conflict through first-person accounts from both sides of the War drawn from our collection over over 16,000 letters and diaries. The Western Art Gallery hosts revolving displays of original artwork celebrating the American West. The "Hunter-Gatherers of the Blackland Prairie" Gallery tells the story of the earliest inhabitants of Central Texas and houses 44,000 prehistoric artifacts. The Pearce Museum also houses Civil War and Navarro College Research Archives, open by appointment.

Very nice museum! They have a guided tour and the tour guide was phenomenal. He would stop and let everyone look at their own pace before moving on. Highly recommend attending the Pearce Museum!

The art collection is amazing for a small museum. The Civil War artifacts are very interesting, especially the personal letters of soldiers. This is well worth the price if you enjoy American History and beautiful artwork.

Loved the way it was designed. It has a lot of history that has been forgotten through the years. The exhibits were very self explanatory and informative. It has a lot of history in it. Very enjoyable for all ages.
