There are visiting exhibits, so it depends what is there when you are in town. There is a floor with Abilene history. There is a floor with a children's museum which is small but well-done. Our favorite exhibit is the music wall.

My brother and his lovely bride had their wedding here. The Grace was once a beautiful hotel back in early 1900. Nearly a ruin, until it was skillfully restored and turned into a museum. I was only able to tour the bottom floor. The wedding...More
