The four-story Grace Museum occupies the Mission Revival-style 1909 Grace Hotel. A neon sign glows on the rooftop, and the museum hosts an interesting collection of permanent and traveling exhibits. Check out the third-floor permanent history display, with an authentic 1940s-era boot shop, early-1900s kitchen, late-1800s parlor, and other period rooms. Second- and third-floor galleries host traveling exhibits of works by various artists that range widely from contemporary sculpture to historical paintings. All share a direct connection to Texas. Don’t leave the children behind: The Grace also houses the Kidsville children’s section and hosts dramatic readings and art activities during the Children’s Art & Literacy Festival.
