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.

NASA Exhibit Open

This year, 2012, marks the 50th anniversary of NASA's arrival in the Houston area. An interesting aspect of this past fifty years of magnificent technical achievement is what NASA has meant to the growth of our local Alvin community and what the combined contribution of those living in Alvin and working for NASA has meant to the National Space Program.

To celebrate this piece of local history, the Alvin Historical Museum announces its new, temporary exhibit, "Celebrating 50 Years of History with NASA and the Alvin Community," which opened September 11, 2012. The exhibit will run through November with extended museum hours. In addition to its regular days and hours, the museum will also be open every Saturday from 11 - 3 and first Sunday of the month from 1 - 4. For more information call, 281-331-4469 or email: alvinmuseum@yahoo.com.
