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.

Our new temporary photo exhibit, “Quanah Parker – One Man, Two Worlds” is opening on Thursday, September 1 and will run through Saturday, October 8. There are 35 pictures of Comanche Chief Quanah Parker and his mother, Cynthia Ann Parker, depicting their history in the development of the U.S. frontier. In addition, there are numerous artifacts from other Indian cultures on loan to the museum which enhance the exhibit. No evening event is planned at this time, but there may be one in the future. You won’t want to miss this unusual exhibit. Come soon.
