Upcoming Museum Events

  • Exhibit: A Flock of Hollyhocks and Other Works by Bonnie Dennis

    Bonnie Dennis is an untrained artist for whom every creative effort is a journey of discovery. She says "That is the fun of it — experimenting and exploring, solving problems, trying something new. I can just say, so far, the results have pleased me and exceeded my gifts."

  • Exhibit: “If You’re Going to Make It, Make It Good:” Innovators and Entrepreneurs

    From cotton to dairy and oil to computers, countless innovative businesses have called Williamson County home. Discover the stories of the county's rich and varied commercial past. This exhibit focuses on the innovative minds in the county who have created award winning or unique materials that represent our entrepreneurial skills throughout the county and world. For example, the Gold Medal Award winning Round Rock Broom Company and Round Rock White Lime Company, local inventors such as Henry Purl Compton, and the future of business in the county in the form of Dell, RDC, and Airborn, Inc.

  • Exhibit: Poppies & Progress: 1917-1923

    The war to end all wars sent shock-waves through the country causing lasting societal upheavals, many of which are reflected in Williamson County.
