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.
Children can enjoy BAM Kids Art Space, featuring an on-site themed art project inspired by a book, and use their powers of observation with a museum scavenger hunt. Docent-lead tours are also available upon request. The museum is surrounded by a public park featuring several sculptures and is perfect for enjoying a break, stroll, or picnic lunch.
BAM, created in 2000 by the Joe Barnhart Foundation, is dedicated providing educational programs and activities that stimulate the imaginations of young people throughout Bee County.
