We stumbled upon this cute little museum in town and thoroughly enjoyed it! Lots of history and interesting memorabilia to look at about the founding families of Sonora and local history. I would recommend stopping by if you are in the area.

Have you ever walked into a museum where you felt right at home? You will at the Old Ice House Ranch Museum in Sonora. You get a taste of the extraordinary friendliness Texas is known for. The exhibits are fantastic, from the stories about Will Carver and the Wild Bunch, to the early days of cattle, sheep and goat ranching in Sutton County. Be sure to take your camera, and plan to stay all day. If you have children, take them. This is the history that made Texas great!

We thought that we would just pop in and take a quick look at this museum. A couple of hours later we were still looking at the exhibits. If you have any interest in early ranching in Sonora, this museum will not disappoint. It is definitely worth the visit.

I can't begin to tell you how fun it was to meet the ladies that run this Museum. They have a vested interest in this town and its history. One of the ladies actually has family that has gone back five generations in this County. You get a real, up close and personal view of the area. They give a tour of the old jail as well. Absolutely worth the time
