Join us on Wednesday, June 19, to enjoy free admission in honor of Juneteenth.

Proclaimed a federal holiday in 2021, Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 when federal troops arrived in Galveston, Texas and informed residents of the end of the Civil War and the abolishment of slavery. This announcement came more than two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation.

The Museum is also offering:

• A special presentation: Civil Rights and the Craft Kids: A Conversation with Patricia Perez.

• Gallery talks that will discuss the civil rights movement.

• Film screenings in our Cinemark Theater.

• Kid-friendly activities that explore African American Upstanders.

• And more!

Visitors are encouraged to reserve their free tickets online in advance. Walk-ins will be accommodated based on availability.
