Changing small collections make for frequent enjoyable visits. Mostly Cleburne history. Small gift shop has reasonably priced unique treasures. Friendly, knowledgeable staff.

If you want a glimpse into Cleburne's history, then this is the place to go. Incredible trip and you get to see one of the original Carnegie buildings which is another trip in itself. You can't go wrong with this visit. A true education. The adults and kids will love this place.

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.

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.
