The Brazos Valley African American Museum and Suddenlink, the local provider of broadband, television, phone services, have partnered to offer free museum admission this Black History Month to honor and raise awareness of African American history and culture.
The Brazos Valley African American Museum was built on the site of one of the original Black Schools in the Brazos Valley. It was the brainchild of retired educator, Mrs. Mell Pruitt, and became officially recognized in 1999. The Brazos Valley African American Museum is the first establishment of its kind to promote the history of African American citizens in the Brazos Valley. The mission of the museum is to explore, develop, preserve, and present the cultural history and heritage of African Americans.
Deeply committed to the health and safety of guests, and staff, the Brazos Valley African American Museum requires masks to be worn at all times for guests visiting the museum.
Admission Hours: Tuesday through Friday from 12PM to 5PM. Saturday from 12PM to 4PM.
Contact the museum for school and group tour reservations outside of museum hours.
