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.

We have word from the mural restorer, Lee Casbeer, that it will be finished in time to install on September 21st!! This makes it possible to set the date of Saturday, September, 26th pm. as the official "re-hanging." Invitations will be sent out to local dignitaries. A brief ceremony will proceed the spotlighting of the re-installed mural. Refreshments will be served in the foyer. There will be free admission to the museum on this Saturday. As we are coordinating this with Alvin Historic Trade Days we will have extended hours on Saturday, 8;00 am-4:00 pm. This will require extra staffing and I am asking Board members to sign up for a shift of 1-2 hours. Everyone should be there at the 1:00 time.
