Visit The Grace

The Grace Museum is a place for all ages to explore art, history and creativity. Our 1909 building was originally the Hotel Grace, and was built to welcome travelers on the railroad. Since 1992, The Grace Museum has been a cornerstone to Abileneโ€™s downtown revival into a welcoming center of the arts, dining and family activities for this dynamic west Texas town.

We hope you will enjoy your visit to The Grace Museum and will return to visit often!

Artist Paul Manes masterfully paints in oils and is well known for his large-scale representational imagery of earth elements such as fire, water, plant life and landscapes. Clues to his underlying inspiration for each painting are often subtly exposed in his titles that reveal intrinsic themes of life, death, power, and freedom.โ
