History

Seven women had a dream in 1972—a dream to transform the burned out shell of the former St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church into an arts and historical center for the children and families of East Texas. Since its inception in 1976, the Museum of East Texas has grown to become a dynamic cultural center. Housed in a historic 1905 church, the Museum contains an extensive collection of paintings and sculptures produced by East Texas artists as well as American, Latin American and European masters. The Museum offers a variety of public programs throughout the year and its commitment to visual arts education and cultural enrichment is the driving force behind all of its programs. Exhibitions, lectures, workshops, children’s events and fundraisers cover a wide range of interests and topics and are sure to appeal to everyone.

  • My daughter went to a weeklong day art camp this summer at the Museum of East Texas, and it was a great experience! The staff was very kind and accommodating, and my daughter had a wonderful experience. The price was also very affordable! I haven't really checked out the museum itself yet, although we plan to soon, so I can't really comment on that yet.
  • Local art on display. Seasonal displays, 'Festival of Trees' worth viewing in November to December. Friendly, knowledgeable staff to answer questions, conduct tours.
