The Texas Heritage Museum recently received Blue Star Museum designation. Blue Star Museums is a collaboration among the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, the Department of Defense, and museums across America. Each summer since 2010, Blue Star Museums have offered free admission to the nation’s active-duty military personnel and their families, including National Guard and Reserve. 

John Versluis, Dean of the Texas Heritage Museum, says, “We are very appreciative of our partnership with the Blue Star Museums program. This is a great way for the Texas Heritage Museum at Hill College to say thank you to our active service members and their families!” 

The Texas Heritage Museum serves an active and successful role in the educational and service missions of Hill College; and brings increasing national and international prestige to Hill College. The Texas Heritage Museum is comprised of three divisions: Galleries & Collections, Historical Research Center, and the Hill College Press. Furthermore, on the front of the museum grounds is the Home of the Official Texas State Medal of Honor Memorial to Native-Born Texans. 

The Museum’s summer hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed on Fridays.
