Get to know us

The Mission Historical Museum is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, which first opened its doors in 2002, and serves the community of Mission and visitors to the area. Via donations, the Mission Historical Museum is able to offer free admission. The Museum maintains both permanent and temporary exhibits, and presents a variety of events and programs for all ages.  Our interpretation goal is to inspire the citizens of our community through the presentation of our exhibits.


Our mission

We tell the story of Mission and western Hidalgo County by collecting and preserving objects and records of historical significance to the area, and by providing related exhibitions, programs, and research opportunities for area residents and visitors.

When we are not preserving the community’s history we are serving the community. Since the Museum’s inception in 2002, we have welcomed over 60,000 people; including students, winter travelers and international visitors. We offer an array of free programs through-out the year. These programs help us form a reciprocal relationship with our community.
