Brownsville’s festive ambience sets the mood for an exciting and fun vacation for the whole family. From our Charro Days festivities in February, to our Latin Jazz Festival in October, it’s no wonder Brownsville is Always a Fiesta!
Visit our exhibit exploring the development and defining borders of Brownsville through maps and aerial photographs. This exhibit will display an array of maps, from early settlements of Brownsville to modern times, illustrating not only the growth of our city but the evolution of map making and geographical accuracy. Some of the more notable illustrations to be put on display include maps of Fort Brown along with that of the Mexican-American war, Cameron County map defining land grants, State of Texas maps, Sanborn Maps, and other portrayals of Brownsville. Take a trip through time with maps of the development of the Brownsville area.
During Museum hours of 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesday thru Saturday
Come visit an exhibit of beautiful artifacts from what is referred to as the “Pre-Columbian Period”. Many of these pieces were gathered by individuals who traveled throughout the Americas. This is a collection of ancient terracotta and geographic domain extends broadly into the cultures of the most notable empires of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, prior to the arrival of Europeans in the 15th century. The mystical names of the Olmecs, the Maya, the Huastecans, and the Inca are nobly represented in this resident collection. Each artifact offers an insight into the daily lives of their crafters; whether the item be an effigy of a figure from the religious world, a utilitarian vessel that was a part of their culinary practice, or an object that was inspired solely on an artistic level.
