Mission Statement

The Fort Bend County Museum Association preserves historical resources by inspiring and educating the public for the purpose of strengthening awareness and appreciation of cultural heritage for future generations.

Description

The Fort Bend County Museum Association, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax-exempt corporation chartered in 1967, whose mission is to preserve and interpret Texas and Fort Bend County history. The American Association of Museums accredited the Association in 1991 and again in 1999, one of only 34 museums in Texas to receive this recognition. Located in the southwestern quadrant of the Houston metropolitan region, the Museum Association serves local, regional and international audiences at its museums and historic sites. The Texas Historical Commission, in a published evaluation of historic sites (2001), termed the Fort Bend Museum "one of Texas' best local history showcases," and the George Ranch Historical Park as a "premier Texas heritage tourism attraction."

The Association operates a local history museum and six historic structures in Richmond, an avocational archeological society, a downtown historic district, and the programs at the 480-acre George Ranch Historical Park. The Association also leads partnerships and collaborations that extend its impact in archeology, preservation and heritage tourism to a broader region of Southeast Texas. Led by a 20-member volunteer Board of Trustees, the organization's current operating budget is $2 million. Association staff consists of 25 full-time, 20 part-time and more than 230 volunteer employees
