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.

Alvin's 50 Years with NASA

This year marks the 50th anniversary of NASA's arrival in the Houston area. One interesting aspect of these past 50 years is what NASA has meant to the growth of the Alvin community and what the combined contribution of those living in Alvin and working for NASA has meant to the National Space Program.

Essentially every NASA technical and administrative discipline, and civil service and support contractor was represented by residents of our community.

As part of the recognition of the past 50 years of local history, there are plans for a 3 month NASA display in the Alvin Historical Museum. Another part of this event is to identify all thos who live/lived in alvin and worked at the Space Center during the past 50 years. To date over 250 names have been identified. For more information, email: alvinmuseum@yahoo.com.
