The Museum collection deals with the early native residents of the County and the immigrations that followed. Museum exhibits include early prehistoric Native American points and an exhibit on the Karankawa Indians. Also on display are items from La Belle, La Salle's shipwreck of 1686 and the power struggle that came from his intrusion into Spanish territory. Exhibits include a diorama of the port city of Indianola and the immigration of the Germans in the 1800's through Indianola to west Texas. One of the museums most impressive pieces is the lens from the Matagorda Island Lighthouse.
