Get your culture-on and learn a thing or two about Texas history, art and photography. A lot of care and dedication by museum curators provides for a nice break from the Texas heat. Enjoyed our quick visit.

I've been to teacher conference at the Grace for several years. This is a great museum to visit and has interesting art on display. Some is permanent and other displays rotate. There is a children's area upstairs that kiddos 10 and under will enjoy.

Visited the museum during the free hours, Thursday, 5:00-8:00 p.m. The museum is small, but interesting. First and third floors had art. Second floor had history and children's science hands-on area.
