The museum is located inside a historic private home near Austin, Texas. We are open to the public by appointment.
Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children, students with ID, and seniors.
Please email or call for more information on how to schedule your visit.
RULES AND MUSEUM ETIQUETTE
Anyone wishing to conduct research at the museum must receive permission and make an appointment to do so. To obtain permission, please email us and request a copy of our Research Request Form. You may be required to submit additional documents or credentials. Researchers should await confirmation of their request before planning their visit.
Appointments must be made at least two weeks in advance. This allows time for staff/volunteer scheduling and the retrieval of requested archival materials to be studied. The museum reserves the right to determine whether or not its staff can accommodate your request.
Groups are limited to 10 persons at a time inside the home. Bus/van parking available.
For your comfort and the protection of our flooring, we request that you wear soft-soled shoes.
Due to the fragile nature of our collections, we regret that we cannot allow children under 6 years of age inside the museum.
All visitors will be required to provide photo identification at check-in.
No large bags/backpacks are allowed inside the museum; staff will secure these items for you during your visit.
Cameras and recording devices are not permitted. However, photocopies, reproductions and/or digital scans of items from our collections are available for a nominal fee.
No food, drinks, or smoking inside the museum.
Parents are asked to closely supervise their children and keep the family group together at all times. School group tours require at least (1) teacher or chaperone.
Because the museum is also a family home, we ask that you respect the privacy of the occupants and do not explore areas that are roped off, behind closed doors or marked “private.”
We enjoy opening our personal residence to the public and sharing our collections with visitors. For security purposes we carefully screen all guests in advance to safeguard against theft or vandalism. We do not publish our street address on the Internet. (After all, this is our family home too. We enjoy our privacy during non-business hours.)
Although we rarely turn away a prospective visitor, we reserve the right to refuse admittance to any persons or groups at our sole discretion. Loud, disrespectful, obnoxious or intoxicated persons will be asked to leave the museum.
