This small museum is filled with lots of historic items and information. Many movies have been filmed in the area. We learned about the military post and saw many personal items from Marfa’s rsidents. I liked a beautiful handmade Texas flag quilt.

Tiny little museum containing some interesting artifacts from Marfa history. Various items owned by Marfa residents. It's small, but if you're walking by, it's an interesting break from art/food/drinks.

Entering this museum, located at the very center of Marfa, is like entering into your grandparents attic. There are pieces of the past all over this old house, which is now a monument to the past of Marfa. The Black and White Photographs document the...More
