About us

The History of West Museum is located in historic downtown West, Texas. (See Geo. W. Brown building in the photo at the right).


In March of 2013, the Museum Board of Directors purchased a historic building in downtown West, Texas for the museum. With the completion of renovations to the interior of the building, plans are now being made to restore the front exterior of the building to its original 1896 look.

Exhibits showcase the early ancestors, businesses, churches, city leaders, farming and ranching, and the impact of Czech culture on the town.

The museum would not be complete without a tribute to the heroes of the April 17, 2013, fertilizer plant explosion.

The History of West Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Donations are greatly appreciated.
