New Permanent Exhibit

Mary Thomas Doll & Toy Collection

  • ​Mary Thomas was a longtime Board member and the creator and director of our Bit of History lecture series. 
  • ​Mary wanted us to have a permanent doll and toy exhibit, and to that end she bequeathed to the Museum her extensive doll collection and other generous gifts.
  • ​We are pleased to announce that Mary's legacy is now reflected in the newly opened Mary Thomas Doll & Toy Collection.​​
  • ​The display space for the collection has been recently doubled, and there is so much more to see!

North Texas Legend

  • ​Oct. 17 @ The Kemp Center for the Arts 
  • Each year we honor a "North Texas Legend"--a person who has made meaningful contributions to the history of area.
  • This year's honoree is Bob Seabury, the man behind all things related to our Jenny biplane and the Jenny to Jet Exhibit--and that's just what he has done at the Museum.



Current featured exhibits

​​​Emil Hermann exhibit

  • ​Emil Hermann was a successful artist who spent much of his life in Wichita Falls.
  • In one room we have 10 of his portraits, and there are three more portraits on display elsewhere in the Museum.
  • ​One of those portraits is of Larry Domino, who was not a person, but a prize-winning Hereford bull owned by J.S. Bridwell.  We are in Texas, after all...

The Mad Medics

  • ​This Dixieland Jazz group formed in 1965 and is still playing today.
  • Some of the members were medical doctors, and that fact inspired the group's name.
  • ​In addition to providing great music here and all over Texas, the Mad Medics' mission has been to raise scholarship funds for medical and music students
