We offer free and exciting hands-on educational programs to the public through innovative exhibits, tours, and outreach events including our annual Pioneer Day at Old Settlers Park. Both of our locations are very kid-friendly, and we encourage families to let the kids explore our many trunks and activities throughout the exhibits.
Through our extensive educational outreach programs, our goal is to preserve the unique stories of the county for both present and future generations. The Museum provides exhibits with insight and accurate historical information based on first-hand sources in a variety of areas. This focus allows the Museum to effectively educate, entertain and enlighten our visitors.Our newest location, The Williamson Museum on the Chisholm Trail, is comprised of living history volunteers who bring to life historic local personalities and give hands-on demonstrations of daily activities from the late 1800s.
In order to grow and continue serving large numbers of students, families, and visitors, we rely heavily on volunteer help in many different roles. We currently need volunteers to assist with living history roles, an array of administrative tasks, tours of our historic courthouse, and as the docents inside the museum. There are also opportunities to assist with educational outreach, cataloging collections, and special events such as Pioneer Days (occurring every May).
