Do your kids know everything there is to know about Mt. Pleasant? You probably answered with a resounding “no.” Unless your kids have been studying up on Mt. Pleasant’s history, they could probably stand to learn a thing or two about the city. Educate and entertain them at the same time with a trip to the Historical Museum at Mount Pleasant Public Library.
This isn’t your normal history museum. Instead, it offers hands-on exhibits that your kids are certain to love. Watch as they walk inside of a Caddo grass hut, where they will listen to a Native American talk about life inside of a Caddo village. They can even see artifacts that were found in Titus County. That will certainly give your kids some pride.
Their pride will grow some more when they visit the field tent, where they will learn about the role the county played in the Civil War. They will get the scoop from Lieutenant Harrison Barrow.
They will also get to visit a hand-hewn log cabin that was built in the style of the early settlers. This cabin includes a 150-year-old spinning wheel, along with some other artifacts.
These are just some of the exhibits you’ll find inside of the museum. By the time your family leaves, your kids will have a new appreciation for Mt. Pleasant and Titus County.
The museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 am until 6 pm, and Saturday from 9 am until 1 pm. You have to arrive at least a half-hour before the museum closes. If you want to go on a group tour, you need to schedule it in advance. Also, if your kids are under the age of 13, you need to go with them.
You don’t want car trouble to derail your trip to the local museum. Ensure that you get to the museum and back quickly and easily by purchasing a new vehicle from Everett Toyota in Mt. Pleasant, TX. Whether you want something rugged or luxurious, the dealership has the perfect vehicle for you.
