The museum features exhibits from over 150 years of Brown County history, from the Penateka Comanche and the earliest Texan settlers to the WWII-era Camp Bowie military collection and modern soil and grass conservation at the Colonel Burns Ranch. Kids love the children's area and the miniature Birdsong Circus. After browsing the rich history of Brown County, guests will enjoy a guided tour of the old jail across the street and be transported back in time to see glimpses of what life was like as a Brown County sheriff... or as an inmate.

Help Keep History Moving Forward
Ever heard the story of the German P.O.W. mural in Brownwood? World War II Camp Bowie also held a prisoner of war camp for captured German soldiers. They painted a 22 foot-long mural on a wall, showing a tank and American troops. When the war ended the Camp closed, the mural was covered by drywall, and forgotten for decades…It has been mostly out of sight for 75 years, but it’s moving to a new home at the Brown County Museum of History-- where this amazing piece of history can be seen!
