Often described as a museum of precious memories, the Vanishing Texana Museum hosts a permanent collection of items tied to our community as well as special exhibitions from local collectors.
During the weeks around Museum Day there will be several special exhibits, special kids tours, and unique items from the history of our community
During the Museum Day celebrations, special exhibits will include the Noel Maddstone, a medical device from the 1800's used to treat rabies, coins from 500 BC to 1000 AD, antique medical bottles, and even an oil can collection
A special “kids tour” which includes hands on operation of a typewriter, dial phone, stereo scope, a civil war sword, the tooth of a Megalodon Shark, and a few more surprises we've got worked up.
Community items tracing Jacksonville's rich railroad and agricultural heritage (we are the Tomato Capital) will interest persons of all ages.
The museum is open every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
