There is some interesting East Texas History here and some things people may not know about the area. They also exhibit local children's art and encourage the Art's for our local youth.

While I wish there was more to this museum in the realm of exhibits, the place is still fantastic! I love the architecture of the place. The exhibits are seasonal as well so you can go visit several times a year. I strongly recommend Christmas time when the trees are up!

The festival of trees at Christmas time is really cool and you will see a BIG variety of decorations and trees. The kids love art camp during the summer and they get to do a lot of projects.

Very nice staff person, but not much to see here. There are a couple of sculptures outside and 2 rooms of exhibits, one of assorted artwork and another for the etymologically inclined. There is another wing which was closed due to Summer Art Camp. Perhaps there will be more to see when art camp is over.

They have a ton of different attractions on the weekends which is perfect for people with children or people who are just visiting town. Highly recommended to people staying over the weekend! Check their schedules! :)

Check to see what special events are coming, otherwise there is not much there. The community hosts several events thru the year and they are worth seeing.

The museum is small, but a lot goes on. Great place to take children in the summer for their art camp. Different types of displays throughout the year. The facilities are great for weddings, receptions, etc.
