Area Museum Tours Kick-Off April 8th
Wednesday, April 7, 2010 • Posted April 7, 2010

County museums in the area have teamed together to open their doors to a museum tour touting the history of our area. This tour provides a unique opportunity for area residents and visitors alike to learn about the area we call home and how we came to be what we are.

The tour will run from April 8 through May 20 and will include museums in Mason, Junction, Menard, Ft McKavett, Eden, Brady, San Saba, and Llano according to the schedule below.

Travel to and between museums and all meals will be on your own. Museums can provide guidance on local eating establishments. Carpooling is encouraged. Admittance to the museums will be by donation only with the exception of Ft McKavett, where a guided tour will be provided. At Ft McKavett, the charge will be $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for children.

Our thanks and appreciation goes out to the various museums, County Historical Societies and County Historical Commissions for their participation and coordination of this tour. We hope our area residents and visitors catch the excitement and enthusiasm that has been building as this effort has come together. We encourage your participation.
