Crockett County Museum
The Crockett County Museum is a museum of local and West Texas regional history located in a three-story rock structure adjacent to the courthouse in Ozona in Crockett County, Texas. The museum was established in 1939 in the Ozona school and moved to its current location in 1958.
The museum building formerly housed the Ozona Methodist Church, which was built in 1926 and burned in 1942. For a time until 1956, the building was a hospital. When the building became the courthouse annex, the museum was relocated there. In 1998, the museum began restoration as the sole occupant of the building.
On the ground floor are a bank room, doctor's office, sewing room, Native American room, and Alamo, Fort Lancaster, and fossil and arrowhead exhibits. On the middle floor are a restored kitchen, parlor, bedroom, meeting room, and gift shop. On the top floor are a blacksmith shop, wool and mohair room, buggy room, saddle shop, mercantile, Mexican heritage exhibit, schoolroom, music room, and library.
The museum charges $3 admission per person for all individuals five years of age and older.
