What a way to spend 107 degree day outside . Very nicely presented. Their museum offers more than just artwork . It highlighted the Texas / Mexican history of our state. A big " thank you " to all the generous donors for sharing some of the amazing artwork as well as the wonderful historical artifacts. Go see it while this particular exhibit is still on display.
Very lovely museum! The staff at the front desk are super awesome! Especially Eduardo. The location is very clean and easy to navigate. There is a small library inside that has printing and good sitting. I think the museum is generally a good place to visit if you live in town and want to have a change of scenery when you are working.
