The Pearce Museum, Featuring Student Tours on the Civil War, American Western Art, and Hunter Gatherers of the Blackland Prairie

Museum Exhibit or ProgramThe Pearce Museum offers students an in-depth look at two 19th century epic events that forged our nation's identity; the American Civil War and the westward expansion that followed. Our Civil War Gallery was designed to incorporate our vast archive of over 15,000 letters and diaries. Through artifacts, primary sources, interactive museum displays, and captivating guided tours with our trained staff; we offer viewers an opportunity to engage in critical and creative thinking about the war and its impact on the individuals who experienced it. We also provide school programs which incorporate our American Western Art collection, students can use visual learning techniques to think about themes of westward expansion, and romanticism of the "Old West". New to the museum, our "Hunter Gatherers of the Blackland Prairie" exhibit offers many inquiry based interactive displays teaching students about Hunters and Gatherers during the Ice Age in the areas we now know as Navarro County, and adjacent counties in Texas. Our Reading collection is one of the largest archaeological collections of locally found arrowheads and projectile points in the state. You can find more specific information on tours we offer (designed to meet TEKS requirements) on our website, or contact us, and we can design a tour to meet your class needs!
