For more than 70 years the Museum of the Big Bend has been collecting and exhibiting artifacts of the vast Big Bend region. Encompassing the Davis Mountains and the borderlands of Mexico, the Big Bend has been inhabited for over 11,000 years. The Museum of the Big Bend’s goal is to showcase this human history and culture reflected through the contributions of the Native Americans, the Spanish, the Mexicans and the Americans.
The Museum is located in Alpine at the northeast corner of the Sul Ross State University campus and can be reached from Entrance Two on U.S. Highway 90 or Entrance Four from Harrison Street. Once on campus, follow the small, brown signs. Admission is free. Donations are always welcomed. The museum is handicap accessible. Guided Tours are available by appointment.
