Naturally, if it is a sunny day, you might want to couple that visit with spending a bit of time outside, as well.
Here, we’re going to give a very brief description of some of the top museums in Abilene, TX and surrounding areas.
Grandkids and Museums
Has it ever crossed your mind to take your grandchildren to a museum? It should! Why is a museum such a great idea? Unfortunately, some people envision “boring and stuffy” when they think about museums. They can be anything but, however. Many of today’s museums provide a space for inspiration, play, experimentation and creativity outside the traditional classroom setting. Some museums center their exhibits and activities around children as well as adults.
Look over the following museums and see which of them may appeal more to you, your family, and of course, your beloved grandchildren.

This is a gem of a museum. In the magical, sleepy, and sweet town of Abilene, you will find this incredible collection appealing to anyone who loves literature and/or picture books.
The Grace Museum
In addition to being a generally fantastic museum, this is also the location for numerous events and summer camps. Through experiences in American history and art, this museum builds multifaceted connections. See for yourself, Texas’s evolving story through collections, programs, and exhibitions.
