You can't go to Jefferson and not do the ghost tour and visit this enthralling museum. The building is packed with artifacts from Jefferson's long and storied history, and you will want to take your time and learn about each and every thing there.

Every time my family and I go to Jefferson, we always stop here for a visit! They have a wide plethora of historical artifacts that span from about the 1800's onward. There are several fascinating sections but my favorite is the art gallery. I could stay in there forever. Every time we visit, we discover something new in the museum and overall, any history lover will not be disappointed if they go here.

You won't believe all the stuff in there spread out among several rooms. It's very eclectic with interesting things to look at from old tools to kitchen items to medical equipment to pottery to dolls to fossils to arrowheads to all kinds of firearms. And that's just a start. Well worth a visit.

Make sure to utilize the women's restroom...its absolutely marvelous! So many intriguing artifacts, such as the moustache tea cup! A glimpse of old Confederate monies, guns, surgical instruments, handcuffs, etc. Also a Texas State Flag that has been to the moon!!

This museum is awesome! It has many rooms of great historical artifacts. It is actually pretty big and requires a lot of walking up and down stairs. The model train display out back is great! I enjoyed our visit to Jefferson and this museum.
