Museum for East Texas Culture

This museum is in the old Palestine high school building. There are three floors plus a basement full of artifacts, memorabilia, and so forth. The place is laid out well, with clean restrooms. Plan on spending a couple of hours to see everything. Lots of really neat stuff.
