The Texas City Museum is supported by the City of Texas City. Located at 409 6th Street North in Texas City, the Museum acquired its current building in March 1992. The 30,000 sq. ft. 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.

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 as you are invited to touch, explore, and ask questions during your journey through the museum. 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.
