Its a really cool old mansion turned into a museum but not a whole lot to see. I personally like the Sante Fe Indian art. You can tour it 30 minutes or less regularly but the best time is during the lawn concerts or the arts and crafts shows outside-really some outstanding vendors to see then! There is food, face...

The Museum is so-so in my oppion. The real fun of this place is during the outside festivals and the Summer Lawn Concerts. The Lawn Concerts are free admission and you can bring your own chairs or blankets to hear the concerts. Bring your picnic dinners and wine, mybe you dog on a leash. Kids welcome as well. Fun!!!!

We arrived early on a Saturday morning for the farmers market at the museum. We loved the farmers market. It's small but lots of good stuff. We decided to see the museum while we were there. GREAT idea. It's small, some areas are currently being renovated, but we greatly enjoyed it. The children's museum has several themed rooms like a... More

Lots of people do not know about this place. It's tucked in around old Midland, with trees and beautiful landscaping, it is a must stop. Let your children explore in the little town they have. Always have beautiful art on display.

The room where the murders took place is not open to the public. I don't know if this place is haunted. Art comes mostly from New Mexico. I did not see a lot from TX. Small place 5.00 to get in and you can spend about an hour to 2 hours there. Sunday evenings in the summer there is live... More

A little art museum hidden away in suburban Midland, housed in what used to be the infamous Turner mansion. There's about 4 big rooms of paintings and sculptures and that's it. You could breeze through the entire collection in 30 - 45 mins., tops. If you have little ones with you, be sure to check out the Childrens' Museum and... More

We saw a dome movie at the planetarium about the return to the moon, and it was amazing. The kids had fun at the art museum, and the printmaking exhibit at the art museum was worth the visit. Great way to spend a Saturday in Midland.

It is a great museum for a town the size of Midland. It has a steady rotation of exhibits, most of which are really good. The facility hosts private showings that are well done and fun. It is a kids place as well as adults. Cost is cheap and you will enjoy an hour or so seeing things from someone... More

Looking for something to do in Midland Texas? Well head on over to Missouri street just west of the downtown area with all the tall buildings and you will find the old Turner Mansion. 1705 W Missouri Street. Just a few blocks east of Garfield street you will see the large red brick museum, with its iron and brick fence... More
