Topics & Activities:
July 3 – Hometown History
Did you know Richmond was once home to the "Mother of Texas," a president and a spy? Kick off summer history by exploring one of the oldest towns in Texas and the legendary people that called it home. Join us as we take a journey to Richmond’s oldest sites, venture inside historic homes, explore Morton Cemetery and so much more!
July 10 – Gone to Texas
It’s time to pack up your bags, hang your "G.T.T." sign on the door and head to Texas. After receiving your land grant from an Empresario, you will make your homestead on the Texas frontier!
July 17 – The Roaring '20s
Let’s have a roaring good time as we celebrate the 1920s! Dance the Charleston, fight for women’s rights, take flight and soar to new heights this summer at the Museum!
July 24 – Hooray for Hollywood
Lights, camera, action! Calling all actors and actresses: come and see your name in lights and shout "Hooray for Hollywood!" Star in your own silent movie, create your own sound and special effects and more! Let’s go to the movies!
July 31 – Blast from the Past
We are so excited to bring back some of our all-time favorite programs from the past few years! Did you ever want to join the circus, take a trip around the world or talk like a pirate? Well, now is your chance at the Fort Bend Museum!
