There is a fine arts museum, planetarium, and children's museum. As a bonus just a few steps away is the Haley Memorial Library.
A beautiful 5,000 sq. ft. historical home houses the fine arts museum. I found the building to be more interesting than its holdings. However there were two paintings that seemed extrodinary. Mike Lanier from Abilene, TX was showing "Hanna's Lace". Freemont Ellis painted "Harvest Time at Taos Pueblo" in 1928. That painting hangs near the entrance. Also one room contained a miniature book show. Little 4 inch book replicas of published complete works seems almost impossible.
Large sculptures dot the landscaped grounds.
There is no fee for the museum or the library. There is however a fee for the children's museum and planetarium.
