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

  • ​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!
