About Us


Since the successful bond issue of 2001, the City of Alvin has renovated the former post office to house the Alvin Historical Museum. Located at 300 W. Sealy, Alvin, Texas, the museum is a major on-going project of the Alvin Museum Society. Exhibits have been designed and fabricated, first-class movable shelving has been installed, offices have been outfitted with furnishings and basic computer equipment, and a breakroom for volunteers has been completed. Other exhibits are being designed and constructed. Except for the basic renovation costs, the Alvin Museum Society has paid for all other improvements through fundraising and generous in-kind gifts from individuals, local businesses and organizations.

The Alvin Historical Museum and Gift Shop officially opened to the public June 1, 2007. The museum and gift shop are open Thursdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of each month from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Admission is $3.00. The Alvin Museum Gift Shop provides a variety of books and other items.

This is an unofficial response from an old neighbor of yours.

The Alvin Historical Museum will hopefully be open after the first of the year.

Volunteers are working to get the Museum ready to open. If you are a not a member please use the form above to join and recieve the Alvin Museum Society's Newsletter. Also please visit the Cottage House Museum. Hours are listed on the Cottage Page.

Having these Museums is a great thing for Alvin and I am sure will become a point of interest for both Alvin and the surrounding areas.

The Open House was well attended and the displays were very well laid out . Kudos to the members responsible for setup and display . The steady stream of visitors was treated to many very nice surprises in the form of paintings , displays , and mutimedia presentations .
The opportunity to see how the Museum is laid out , including the storage spaces and office spaces was welcome also .
Our Museum is on track now !
