  • We are new to Bell County and we just found the Bell County Museum. I’ve lived in small and large towns and I’ve never seen a museum engage a community better than this one. Last night we attended the haunted night at the museum and there was a line around the block of parents and children waiting to get into the museum. Once in, my kids were engaged by multiple volunteers dressed up as different historical figures, Darth Vader, a long horn. My kids left smiling and loving their museum. My husband and I will be back to see the beautifully curated collection. Well done!
  • They always have fun activities for the kids. Katie is awesome and makes it fun for the kids! Lot of cool history from Bell County worth checking out.
  • Awesome place. Unbelievable how much history a small town can play into a country’s history. Great learning experience
  • Wonderful experience for the Halloween event. Staff was nice well organized neat building. We had a wonderful time! And 2 pokestops :)
  • I have a close personal and professional attachment to this amazing museum. They sponsor and showcase incredible collections based on themes. This month (July 2017) they are presenting a collection called From "Swords to Plowshares: Metal Trench Art From World War I." A must see for the art and war history enthusiast. Also check out their permanent exhibit about the world famous Gault archaeological site. Admission is free, they accept donations, plenty of parking.
