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.

"Patriotism" by Donna Rae Harris

The temporary exhibit at the Museum is a collection of mixed media artworks by retired art instructor, Donna Rae Harris. Ms. Harris is very talented and creates many unique and unusual types of art. Her exhibit closes the end of April. Make plans now to visit the Museum and see her display.

Donna Rae graciously donated an original watercolor for a raffle benefiting the Museum. Entitled "Patriotism" it is on display at the Museum. Raffle tickets are $2.00 each or 3 for $5.00. Tickets are available at the Museum, the Cottage Museum and from several museum society volunteers. Drawing will be April 29, 2009.
