Midland County History Museum
Texas and Main Midland, TX 79701
The Midland County History Museum is located at 200 North Main Street (at the corner of Main Street and Texas Avenue). The Museum opened at the new location on March 1. The Museum is currently staffed by volunteers on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and is open from 11 am until 4 pm.
Currently the Museum features its first temporary exhibit entitled From Plans to Planes and Petroleum: Midland During World War II. The exhibit includes reproductions of Midland Reporter-Telegram newspapers from the years 1941-1945, as well as prints of local photographs from those years. There are also multi-media features, including a color home movie taken during the war, an audio track of music and news from the war years, and a movie trailer collection of films that played in Midland's three movie theaters during the war. An Activity Center allows visitors to examine and interact with other historic materials.
The Midland Historical Society is currently working to raise funds to construct a permanent exhibit detailing Midland's history. This will tell the story of Midland County from prehistory to the present and feature some of the rare artifacts in the museum collection.
In addition, the Society will host special events and programs. For the most current news regarding museum activities, visit the Midland Historical Society Facebook page.
The Museum is open Thursday-Saturday, from 11 am until 4 pm
