The museum is small, but a lot goes on. Great place to take children in the summer for their art camp. Different types of displays throughout the year. The facilities are great for weddings, receptions, etc.

It has been years since I visited this place...until this last Christmas. I agree with one of the reviewers that there is not a lot to see sometimes. However, if you are in town during the holidays, stop by and see their Christmas Tree Festival. It is a wonderful display of about 200 decorated Christmas trees. We all loved it,... More

Each summer for the past seventeen years, the Museum of East Texas hosts an Art Camp for 400 plus students ages three to fourteen. Additionally there are evening classes for adults. During this three month period, the main galleries are filled with the excitement of children and their joyful noise as they attend classes offered in twenty-one different mediums. Each... More

Visited as the volunteers were setting up 100+ trees for their Festival of Trees (for Christmas). About 5 galleries, one with a photography display that was excellent, another with items from their collection (history of the area) and one with FABULOUS fabric art. Excellent gift shop with unique items for purchase. Friendly staff.

Always a new art exhibit on display. Wonderful children and family activities. Christmas is a wonderland when the trees are on display. A must see. Lufkin is so fortunate to have such a museum downtown. And it is always free

Every couple of months I would go to the Museum of East Texas. You are always greeted by the kindest woman from Holland. There is a gift shop to the right of the entrance that is filled with handcrafted artwork. The museum is always filled with beautiful work. Whenever friends and family would come to Lufkin, I would always take... More
