The museum will be closed on Monday, October 7, 2019 due to rennovations to the gift shop.
The 14th Annual Old Timers Reunion is on October 19, 2019 from 10am-2pm in the conference room. All retired prison employees and their spouses are invited to attend. Come join us for free food, fellowship, and door prizes.
Due to us conducting a monthly comprehensive inventory, the museum may experience a delay in opening on the first Monday of each month. Please call us at 936-295-2155 prior to traveling.
