Experience one of Texas’s great small towns for art with a visit to the Beeville Art Museum (BAM).  Located in South Texas, the museum is an easy drive from Austin, San Antonio, Victoria, Corpus Christi, and Houston, and a perfect family road trip. Admission and activities are always free.

Housed in a graceful Victorian-style house built in 1910, BAM is home to one of the most ambitious art and educational programs in Texas. The museum features rotating exhibits from a variety of established and cutting-edge Texas artists and mediums. Upcoming artist exhibitions include: Orna Feinstein, Lorena Morales, Annie Uhr, Tiffany Heng-Hui Lee, and Kingsley Onyeiwu.
