We went to the museum based on the TripAdvisor recommendations and were blown away. The building restoration was true to the original building architectural elements. We discovered a period of Texas Modernist art and the artists we never knew existed. This is must see for...More

The museum is a gem. It has great historical exhibits, art galleries and a interactive children's museum. It's a treasure in small town Texas.

From toddlers to teens to adults--the Grace always delights. Great staff and good revolving exhibits. A fun place to spend an afternoon or even a evening during ArtWalk.

There was nothing there unless you are a parent whose child has set in the exhibit. First floor had an exhibit of hanging abstract sheets of paper. The whole museum took us about 30 minutes and that included climbing the stairs.

The building is beautiful and we enjoyed the artwork on display. The recreated historical 'rooms' were interesting and included a cowboy boot maker. The interactive children's room looked a lot of fun including a to tornado making machine.

Three floors of items. Some of the art was ok but most was not "museum" quality. The history was nice and the child station was good. It is more an art center than a museum.
