“A Smithsonian Affiliate Museum”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

For 2013, The Ellen Noёl Art Museum is an official Smithsonian Affiliate, one of only two art museums in the state of Texas to have this status. The Ellen Noel has always had excellent exhibitions.

Our favorite part visiting there is always The Sensory Garden. In 1998 the museum made a garden completely accessible and "user friendly" to visually and physically challenged visitors through design consultation with the Texas Commission for the Blind, the County Extension Service, and Permian Basin Master Gardeners. It's a beautiful and calming shady place.
