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.

President’s Message ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING Sunday, October 25th, 2:00 pm 309 W. Sealy Street (Alvin Senior Center) The summer months were filled with ups and downs for us. We were “up” learning that the restored Post Office Mural project was underway with a possible completion date of the middle of September. Continuing, we were “down” learning that the replacement of the hallway floor required asbestos removal, delaying the completion of repairs there and in the exhibit hall. By the end of July we were on the way to seeing all back to normal, until the air conditioning went out the first week of August, causing us to be closed for the next three weeks. Thanks to our COO, Tom Stansel, and the assistance of the City of Alvin, all needed repairs were made and we resumed “business as usual.” Throughout all of the situations, we did stay “up” due to a steady stream of responses from members who renewed within the transition period. In addition several new business members joined, bringing our total membership to 321 to date.
