Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The Texas Confederate Museum was a museum in Austin, Texas, in the United States. It opened in 1903, in a room on the ground floor of the Texas Capitol, and closed in 1988. It was run by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, each of which had a separate collection in the museum. From 1920 to 1988 it was housed in the Old Land Office Building, and in fact occupied that building much longer than the Texas Land Office did. In 1990 the Old Land Office Building, after closing for renovations, reopened as the Capitol Visitors Center. The Museum, unable to find a new home, closed. The paper portion of its collection was donated to the Nita Stewart Haley Memorial Library in Midland, Texas, the artifacts to the Texas Civil War Museum near Fort Worth.
