Alvin Historical Museum
Since the successful bond issue of 2001, the City of Alvin has renovated the
former post office to house the Alvin Historical Museum. Located in the historic downtown
section of Alvin at
300 W. Sealy, Alvin, Texas
, the museum is a major on-going project of the Alvin Museum Society.
Currently over twenty permanent exhibits from Prehistoric, Indian, the Formation of Texas
and Alvin, Railroad, Ranching, Farming, War and more.
Other exhibits are being constructed.
Temporary exhibits which highlight special interests are
being changed every few months. First-class movable shelving in our accession area houses over 9,000
photographs and artifacts in the collection. Offices have been outfitted with furnishings and basic
computer equipment and have an Internet connection.
Except for the basic renovation costs, the Alvin Museum Society has paid for all other
improvements through fundraising and generous in-kind gifts from individuals, local
businesses and organizations.
Memorials and donations support the growth of AMS projects and exhibits.
Operating costs are managed with membership fees and admission fees.
The Historical Museum is open from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and the
first Saturday of each month; also from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. the first Sunday of the month. Admission
is $3.00. Children 12 and under are free.
Special arrangements are available for groups.
