Humanities Texas is the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Through programs that improve the quality of classroom teaching, support libraries and museums, and create opportunities for lifelong learning, we advance education throughout the state.
Funding has been provided to Texas Association of Museums from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020.
Texas is home to more than 900 history museums. Whether housed in an historic structure or a state-of-the-art new building, each one is dedicated to telling the story of its community’s unique history. Collectively, they preserve the real places and the real things that tell the whole story of Texas. By helping us explore how our past influences our present, they enrich all our lives.
