“Great variety in a small museum”

Museum of East Texas
Ranked #5 of 13 things to do in Lufkin
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Visited as the volunteers were setting up 100+ trees for their Festival of Trees (for Christmas). About 5 galleries, one with a photography display that was excellent, another with items from their collection (history of the area) and one with FABULOUS fabric art. Excellent gift shop with unique items for purchase. Friendly staff.

Always a new art exhibit on display. Wonderful children and family activities. Christmas is a wonderland when the trees are on display. A must see. Lufkin is so fortunate to have such a museum downtown. And it is always free

the Museum of East Texas has various exhibits which make for a pleasant outing and viewing.... i am especially pleased with the way they have integrated the old Episcopal Church building with the newer parts of the Museum..... take time to note the plaques which mention the names and accomplishments of some of the people from the Lufkin area who are memorialized in the rooms which have been named, particularly in the older Church building.... it's really good to have a Museum of this calibre in a non-urban area like Lufkin!

Every couple of months I would go to the Museum of East Texas. You are always greeted by the kindest woman from Holland. There is a gift shop to the right of the entrance that is filled with handcrafted artwork. The museum is always filled with beautiful work. Whenever friends and family would come to Lufkin, I would always take them to the MET. They also have wonderful events that they hold.
