Our mission is to keep the spirit and history of Texas and the American West alive through meaningful, accessible exhibits and programs for all age groups. The unique experience we offer brings history to life and keeps it relevant for all.

Gifts and donations of all sizes ensure that the Museum can continue to offer life-changing, inspiring experiences for our community. When you make a tax-deductible donation to The Bryan Museum, you act as a protector of our proud heritage.

With your gift, we can continue to strive for excellence in exhibition, education, programming, and conservation. Only through the generous support of patrons like you can we continue to grow and preserve our shared heritage for generations to come.
