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!

Thursday's Latin Dance Night at The Grace Museum brought out a really amazing crowd - 125 people from Abilene, Merkel, Anson, Wichita Falls, Houston - we even had some hailing from Mexico, Columbia, and Spain! Cypress Street Station hosted a cash bar and DjManteca cranked out a mix of everyone's favorite Latin tunes while couples, sisters, friends (old and new) enjoyed a night of cumbia, salsa, merengue, reggaeton and other fun dances in the Courtyard. Thanks to EVERYONE who came out to hang with us last night! We hope to see you again next time!!! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บ ... See MoreSee Less
