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.

Space Items on Display

The 3 month NASA display in the Alvin Historical Museum will run from September 11 through the end of November. Featured will be space memorabilia from numerous sources, plus a number of exciting space items on loan from the Johnson Space Center's exhibits area. One display will feature the engineering tools that took us to the moon.

During one two-week period, September 20 through October 4, there will be a "photo op" space suit available where the young and young at heart can suit up for picture taking. Bring your camera!
