The Brazoria County Historical Museum has a vibrant and active list of exhibits and programs. These offerings are designed to edify and educate participants about Brazoria County history. In addition to our permanent exhibit, we present a couple of temporary exhibits each year. After our exhibits close you may browse their contents here.
The Museum offers a variety of educational and public programs. These include guided tours of the Museum as well as outreach programs for schools and civic groups. Schools may book tours of the Museum, outreach programs or check out activity trunks targeted to local curricula.
Austin Town is an annual historical re-enactment of a fictional 1832 town. This living history event allows visitors to suspend disbelief and experience the sights, sounds, smells and life in Austin's Colony. The re-enactment will be held on the weekend of November 1-2, 2012.
Additional resources for teachers, including lesson plans, study guides and activity sheets, are also available.
