Visit the Grace

The Grace Museum is a place for all ages to explore art, history and creativity. Our 1909 building was originally The Grace Hotel, and was built to welcome travelers on the railroad. Since 1992, The Grace Museum has been a cornerstone to Abilene’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.
