This museum had a modern addition attached to an historic building as well as a reproduction of a log cabin. There were loads of interactive exhibits. A huge focus was on archaeology. We learned that they have evidence of people living in central Texas as far back as 13,400 years ago! The exhibits were kid-friendly--you could open drawers and view... More

I live this place! They have scavenger hunts for the kids, they even have non reader ones. They change out exhibits often, but they also have permanent ones.

The Bell County Museum is always bringing something new or should I say "old" to Belton. If you love history and seeing it up close, stop by.

The museum isn't flashy, but it is comprehensive, including excellent exhibits on area geology, climate, and history. We spent an hour and would have stayed longer, but the staff... More

Our tour guide was Dr. Clark Wernecke, Executive Director of the Gault School of Archaeological Research! He was so informative, but made it interesting and entertaining! If you live in the central TX area, check this... More
