Collections and Artifacts
The Weslaco Museum has quite an extensive collection of artifacts. Some of these artifacts are on regular display throughout the museum. However, we have such an extensive collection that we cannot possibly exhibit all of our artifacts at once.
The large portion of our collection that is not on exhibit is stored away in an artifact conservation room. These artifacts are categorized into several groups including: Kitchen and Housewares, Cameras, Clothing, Shoes, and Hats, Military, Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils, Communications, as well as several others. These artifacts range in time from the early 1800's through the early 2000's......nearly 200 years of history (not counting our fossils and petrified wood).
Please contact the museum if you would like to set up an appointment to see any of the artifacts in our conservation room.
Below you will find a SMALL example of some of the items that we have in our collection.
