We stayed at the Liberty Hotel and this little museum was within walking distance. We didn't expect much, but they have very nice displays and the pleasant staff made the visit very pleasant. Nice way to spend an hour or more depending on how much detail you are interested in.

Local (Cleburne & Area) items with gift shop. I liked the building since I have visited several Carnegie Library Buildings.

An impressive collection in amazing building. Much could be done to improve and I know it's a museum but my dust allergy was going crazy. Get a couple of food air purifiers. I have no idea how to assemble or squire these type of collections. But there will never cease to be many locals who want to see them AND... More

With an emphasis on local family life in the last century and a small but impressive civil war and American Indian collection, the Layland Museum in Cleburne is a small town treasure. Housed in a beautiful and historical turn-of-the century Carnegie Building, this former library has been lovingly restored and maintains a research library for those interested in tracing their...

Museum was very well laid out and signage was excellent! Had interesting artifacts and information we'd not seen elsewhere! Volunteer on duty was very welcoming and well informed. Glad we made the trip! Nice antique stores in walking distance on town square.

They are a small museum in a neat, historic building. I don't know why the picture here shows the La Quinta. It has a lot of potential. Actually, they have an incredible collection of Civil War weapons that they never display. Instead, they often have displays on "Frontier Women" and the like.

This is a great place if you don't have much time or if you want to linger. Many areas of Texas life with historical elements are on display. Indian artifacts, cowboy gear, and a variety of different collections changed out every few months. There is a great early taxidermy piece, which we called a mermaid when I was younger,that looks...

If you are ever passing through Cleburne, TX or are planning to visit, do yourself a favor and go to the Layland museum. This historical landmark is full of Texas history, American history, and Cleburne history. What impressed me the most is their personal tribute to the hands of women who worked in Cleburne. They had about 12 women cast... More
