Description

Exhibits include models of the old swing bridge and Velasco lighthouse, Discovery Dome planetarium, Antonelli's tribute, Children's Exhibit, and rotating temporary exhibitions.

Our Children's Exhibit is now open.

Our Children's Exhibit is now open. Come make a parachute and see it fly, build a lego masterpiece or get a high score on Xbox Connect. Hold a puppet show, build a molecule, or take a stroll across the wacky bridge. This exhibit is especially designed to let your child's imagination soar.

Throughout the year, the City of Freeport Historical Museum displays temporary exhibits. These exhibits range from traveling exhibits to exhibits created specifically for the museum. The exhibits created for the museum include The American Presidents, The Birds of Freeport, The Spirit of Texas, and our newest temporary exhibit, Bringing the War Home. Check out our Events Calendar to see which exhibit is currently on display.

Local residents have donated or loaned the Museum historical memorabilia. If you would like to donate or loan a piece of Freeport history to the museum, please contact the museum at 979-233-0066 or City Hall at 979-233-3526.
