Texas City Museum
The Texas City Museum is the center of history, culture, and heritage for the people of Texas City. We seek to educate and enlighten visitors as we become a premier destination museum by creating an engaging experience for all.
The Texas City Museum encourages the explorer in everyone to experience the past, encounter the present, and discover the future.
It is a place where both emotions and intellect are challenged. The Galveston County Model Railroad Club Exhibit is also open each Saturday on the second floor of the museum. Please join us in our discovery of the past and journey toward a brighter future.
The Texas City Museum is supported by the City of Texas City. The Museum acquired its current building in March 1992. The 30,000 square foot building, previously known as the old J.C. Penney building, was donated by the McDaniel family of La Marque. Since its opening in March 1994, visitors from around the United States and abroad have toured the Museum.
A few of the exhibits featured in the museum are:
- 1947 Texas City Disaster films, photographs and artifacts
- Children’s Discovery Room
- City Founding: Texas City from beginning to present
- Dahlgren Cannon from the U.S.S. Westfield
- First Aero Squadron
