REPUBLIC OF TEXAS HISTORY CENTER
The Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT) have owned the property adjacent to the French Legation Museum since May, 2013. By building the Republic of Texas Museum and business offices on this property, DRT will create the Republic of Texas History Center, a visit to three museums – The French Legation Museum, The Republic of Texas Museum, and the Children’s Interactive Museum. The Center will provide a larger, more appropriate setting for exhibits, educational programs, conferences, and other festivities. In this way, DRT will better serve the State of Texas and visitors seeking to learn about and appreciate the fascinating history of the State of Texas.
