Mission Statement

The mission of Victoria Regional Museum Association is to enrich, enlighten, and educate all people through visual art and cultural history.

Description

The Victoria Regional Museum Association oversees the Nave Museum and the McNamara House Museum.

The Nave Museum was designed in 1932 by San Antonio architect Atlee Ayers to serve as a memorial for Texas artist Royston Nave and to house the Bronte Public Library. The Royston Nave Museum was given to the city of Victoria in 1976 to serve as an art museum, which resulted in the formation of the Victoria Regional Museum Association.

The McNamara House was built in 1876 as a residence for William J. McNamara, a local bussinessman, and his family consisting of a wife and four daughters. Today, the McNamara House serves the public as a historic house museum using the McNamara family as its vehicle to interpret the social, economic, and cultural lifestyle of the middle class South Texas family at the turn-of-the-century.
