Bryan Museum

  The beautiful building that houses the museum started it’s life in 1885 as a orphanage. In 1987 Ross Dinyari bought the abandoned orphanage  and renovated it to use as his private residence however when he married, his wife wanted to live elsewhere so the building was bought by J.P. Bryan with the intention of creating a museum. 
  The museum exhibits briefly cover the early history of Texas with and emphasis on local history. Many artifacts fill the display cases and a very elaborate diorama with 2000 tiny figures depicts the Battle of San Jacinto. There’s also an area for children and beautifully landscaped grounds. 


The museum is accessible.

  The parking lot is large enough for RVs. Museum  29.29735, -94.78962


  1. I don't think I'd want to live in that place either, but it makes a nice museum!

    1. The lobby was beautiful but it would be a little strange have the building as your home.
