Very helpful staff for Genealogy. We were able to search several records and microfiche. The archives are in the basement of the Masonic Lodge

My brother is a former Grand Master for the State of Texas. I took him to the museum on one of his past visits. What an amazing museum and what exciting displays. I am a Mason myself but I can tell you we spent a couple of hours just looking at everything... Loved it!! as did my brother.

This is what my kids always called it because nobody seemed to know about this treasure. There are military artifacts dating back to the early wars in America; shoes from all over the world/time; Egyptian artifacts; a buffalo head; complete samuri warrior armor; etc.
