The Refugio County Museum was built to suggest the log cabin style houses typical of the Texas pioneer days. The permanent exhibits trace the history of the area, from the establishment of the Spanish Mission to the immigration of Irish settlers; and the impact of ranching and oil after 1929. A highlight of the museum is a collection of bronze sculptures by Western artist Fredic Remington on permanent loan from owner Jack Kelly.
There is also a collection of memorabilia of baseball great Nolan Ryan, who was born in Refugio.
Open Tue-Fri 9am to 5pm and on Sun from 1pm to 5pm.
