The Grace Museum is an integral part of Abilene's historic district and brings innovative experiences of art, history and education to our region. Our Museum relies on support from generous donors to develop quality exhibitions and programs that are accessible to everyone. Our award-winning exhibitions are curated in-house and complementary educational programs are developed to engage children, adults and families throughout the year. In 2016, more than 63,000 visitors toured The Grace galleries and took part in our classes, events and programs.
