Sam Houston State Museum Reminders

Heads up for those who are interested—there is only a little more than a month left to enter the 2011 Amateur Photo Contest. Click HERE to see our original article about the event.

There is also only one month left to see J. Griffis Smith’s Texas: A Retrospective through the Lens and Images from Texas Highways. This popular exhibit features the images of J. Griffis Smith that were taken around Texas for over twenty-five years for Texas Highways magazine. The exhibit is curated by Mac Woodward and Casey Roon. Visit the Katy & E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center today to see this exhibit. The last day to see this exhibit is August 31, 2011.

Finally, for those in the military, the Sam Houston Memorial Museum is a proud participant of the Blue Star Museum program. This means that since Memorial Day through Labor Day on September 5, 2011, the museum is offering free admission to all military personnel and their families. Just show your military ID and you and up to five immediate family members will be given free admission to the museum. 
We, like many people in Huntsville, appreciate the museum and all of the work done to keep this historical site perserved and grounds maintained. Please remember to not harm the ducks at the duck pond. Casey Roon reported a couple of months on her blog that some of the ducks were being harmed by visitors to the park. The story was awful, and we hope that is no longer a problem.

(look, feed, but PLEASE don't harm!)

Visit their website today to read more about what the museum has to offer as well as ways that you can donate to keep this historical museum open. They also have a Facebook page.
