Experience the past.

Lots of local history donated by people who live in Katy. Local guides can tell you more about anything in the museum. Fascinating place.

Alamo is a wonderful reminder of the local flavor of the theatres of old, but updated with a bar and greaet food. The bar features a wide selections of draft beers, and some interesting and unique appitizers. Prices are reasonable and the latest films are always listed. There are some more unique specialty films scheduled now and then for late... More

Local history can sometimes be fascinating. You never know what tidbits of information exist about small cities until you investigate for yourself and one place where you can do exactly that is the Katy Heritage Museum, a museum dedicated to the history of Katy, Texas, a west Houston suburb. I visited the Katy Heritage Museum for the first time on... More

I was stuck in traffic and wasn't able to get to the museum before it closed, but it is located in a nice area next to the Heritage Park buildings. The building has a great mural welcoming people to Katy, Texas. It seems like a very family friendly place and I plan on trying to visit there again soon to... More

Enjoyable trip with son and daughter in law. We went to downtown Katy and enjoyed the antique shops. Found out that Katy was home to a rice festival. The people were friendly and helpful. The prices in the shops were very reasonable.

My grandma and I enjoyed all the history in this museum. I didn't know what to expect but I was thoroughly pleased with the artifacts and information there. I went during the week so the historic homes weren't open but we walked around and read the plaque in front of each which was fun as well. I definitely recommend coming... More

very nice living experience of life in the area 100 years ago or so. they show how to take raw cotton from the plant to carding, and cleaning and spinning into yarn, write with ink and quill, blacksmiths, milling, incubating chicken eggs, and so on. A great history experience for grade school kids.

This is a great collection of old homes and a post office relocated and preserved just off of Ave D in old Katy. These historic homes are surrounded by period gardens and decorated with typical furnishings of the time. All the homes are rooted in Katy's local history and are worth visiting. The grounds are always open and have a... More

I love the layout of the buildings and the gazebo. I have trouble picking a day when the buildings are open, so plan ahead if you want to go inside.
