Best for Local History

Peak age of enjoyment: all ages

Pros: well laid out galleries and restored historic homes which greatly enrich understanding of local history, a great group field trip

Notes: advance reservation with a group of 15+ is the ideal way to see this museum and is lowest in cost

The Ft. Bend Museum has a wonderful summer program. My son has attended several times and has always enjoyed it. Ms. Clair is wonderful with the kids and makes learning local history fun.
