Textile Treasures

The Sam Houston Memorial Museum, like most museums, houses thousands upon thousands
of artifacts, photographs, manuscripts, and other objects that the public never sees. Come visit
the Exhibit Gallery in the Katy & E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center and view some of the contents
of our closets!

Gorgeous dresses and other vintage clothing and accessories are on display in a myriad
of color and grandeur. All items are normally tucked safely away in Museum storage.
