Owner description: The Pearce Museum at Navarro College is located on the Corsicana, Texas campus of Navarro College in the Cook Education Center. Three unique and nationally significant collections (Civil War and Texas History, Modern Western Art and Prehistoric Central Texas) are interpreted in interactive, visitor-friendly galleries. The American Civil War gallery interprets our Nation's bloodiest conflict through first-person accounts from both sides of the War drawn from our collection over over 16,000 letters and diaries. The Western Art Gallery hosts revolving displays of original artwork celebrating the American West. The "Hunter-Gatherers of the Blackland Prairie" Gallery tells the story of the earliest inhabitants of Central Texas and houses 44,000 prehistoric artifacts. The Pearce Museum also houses Civil War and Navarro College Research Archives, open by appointment.

You walk the line between the war that rages over your head between the north and south. You hear the death cries of the solides as they die many not understanding how this happend and how is split their country and family. A shinning diamond of a smal first class museum where you least expect it. A thank you to the family whose generosity leaves a legacy of the civil war you should experience. Regroup from the Drama with the Western Art Museum and enjoy and revere the beauty and tributes to our west at the Western Art Musuem located on the Navarro College Campus at Corsicana Texas

The museum is on the campus of Navarro college. The address given is a run down residential area. Upon finding the museum it is a very outstanding experience.

Well worth the time to go thru. We were there on a day when we were the only ones in there. Personal tour was wonderful. The man giving the tour was very knowledgeable. The Art exhibit was not open so they just charged us half price which we were not expecting. Very pleasant people.
