I enjoyed the visit to the county museum.I really like the moonshine steel that was on exhibit. The founding families photos and documents were interesting.

We had some time to waste and gave this a try. We enjoyed seeing all the old items (had never seen a hand-pump floor vacuum before). There's no fee, but can give a donation. The hours are limited and only open on the weekend. Also have lots of fossils on display. It ended up being a good place to spend almost an hour.

Imagine all the residents of your town getting together and donating the best item they have that describes their community from years past. That's what the Somervell County Museum brings to this area. All kinds of interesting artifacts and little treasures, all housed in a small two-room building that doesa a great job of merchandising. If you look carefully - and I mean carefully, there are some great stories revealed here and don't hesitate to ask the curator (usually sitting outside enjoying nice weather) what the most important item(s) are. You'll get an invaluable insight into the community that surrounds Glen Rose. You won't spend more than 20 minutes here, but for a small contribution at the door, it's well worth the time.

This was a nice surprise along the city square and the volunteer staff were so adorable! Many historic photos of the area as far back as 1890's. A dinosaur track out back along with casted tracks inside. I highly recommend you view the 'Ice House' on the square, it's such a cute structure along with the old jail. All is free and the museum accepts donations.
