The Williamson Museum
At The Williamson Museum, history is painted right onto the walls. Seven murals cover spaces in the museum, with each one depicting a historical scene from the 1930s and 1940s. Turn-of-the-century photographs take visitors back even farther, profiling Williamson County during its earlier days. Many of the other exhibits cater to children's curiosities with interactive features, like Willie's Kids Corral. There, a chuck wagon sends kids back to the days of the cowboys and even lets them ring a dinner bell, which was used before cowboys could send text messages to say the beans were ready.
The Williamson Museum operates as a nonprofit organization, with proceeds going toward funding various forms of educational outreach. The staff also runs history-themed camps for kids and leads tours of the historic Williamson County Courthouse, among a variety of programs.
