Admission includes access to the King Tutankhamun, Egyptian Treaures exhibit, which features stunning pieces from the private collection of Giovanni Amin. Inside, guests can explore artwork and more than 150 artifacts from ancient Egypt, including the most famous treasures from King Tut’s tomb—his inner sarcophagus and gold funerary death mask. Other sights include relief panels, jewelry, antique objects, and high-quality replicas, all designed to whisk visitors back to a time when Pharaohs ruled the land and chain coffee-shops were denied permits for conducting business inside the great pyramids.

Brownsville Museum of Fine Art

The seeds for the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art were planted in 1935, when the Brownsville Art League began to meet and discuss fine art. In the 1960s, a member took the league to the next level by designing a small art studio where they could house and display their collections. In 2002, it grew again, this time into an official museum featuring a lineup of permanent and rotating fine art. Despite the expansions over time, the core mission has stayed the same: to share art with the community and enrich the cultural landscape of Brownsville. Here are some more facts about this community institution.

  • Size: 17,000 square feet of bright space that holds over 350 pieces of fine art

  • Eye Catcher: works by luminaries, such as Marc Chagall, N.C. Wyeth, and Alexander Calder

  • Permanent Mainstay: Pedro Meyer's Heresies, a collection of photographs and digital images, which are combined to create striking pieces that challenge the viewer's beliefs about what's real and not real

  • Events: every year, the museum hosts two juried art shows—one just for students—which showcase work by artists from all over the world

  • Past Exhibits: La Casa Azul, Frida Kahlo's Intimate Universe, complemented by an exhibit of photographs of the artists by Nickolas Muray

  • Special Programs: the art-making classes for adults and kids, which garnered the museum a commendation from the Texas Art Education Association for outstanding service to the community
