We were surprised at the quality of exhibits at the Grace. For a small museum, there is much to see and do. Great for all ages. Definitely a must see in Abilene.

Get your culture-on and learn a thing or two about Texas history, art and photography. A lot of care and dedication by museum curators provides for a nice break from the Texas heat. Enjoyed our quick visit.

If you are passing the time, then it's ok. Third floor to depict early times. Kitchens and living areas of the early 1900's that have been adorned with furniture of the era. The second floor is decorated with children art. What I liked best was...More
