Summer Museum Passport

Museums and historical sites across Brazoria County are teaming up to organize a Summer Museum Passport to encourage children and families to learn more about local history. Each location is different and showcases unique parts of Brazoria County's past!

Kick-Off Event

Lake Jackson Historical Museum

249 Circle Way, Lake Jackson, TX 77566

Saturday, June 1

10 AM - 1 PM

Free Admission!

Pick up your passport and earn your first stamp! Representatives from other participating locations will have stations throughout the museum to help you plan the rest of your museum visits and get excited for summer! You will also learn how you can win a raffle prize at the Closing Event at the end of summer by completing your passport! The prize will be a basket filled with special items from each museum!  Admission to Lake Jackson Historical Museum is free, but we do ask that you RSVP if you plan to attend the event.

Go At Your Own Pace

You can still participate in the Summer Museum Passport even if you can't make it to the Kick-Off! Once we have kicked-off the program at the Lake Jackson Historical Museum passports will be available at ALL participating locations (listed below) throughout the summer! You do not have to go in a specific order! Plan your visits as they coordinate with your family's summer plans.

Getting Stamps

There are a total of 13 historic locations participating in this program! Visit the sites listed in the passport during their regular business hours and get your passport stamped before you leave! You will need to get 10 locations stamped to receive one raffle entry during the closing event. If you go above and beyond and visit all 13 sites, you will receive a second raffle entry! Each museum/historic site's hours of operation and admission fees (if applicable) are listed inside the passport.
