Future endeavours include renovating the upstairs. Future upstair exhibits will be a late 1800's Doctors Office, Dentist Office, Veterinary Office and Laboratory. Update: Renovations are coming along well. We hope to have part of the upstairs open to the public by December 2018. We are very excited about this.
Upcoming Polio Exhibit
Our biggest goal is to aquire an iron lung for a polio exhibit. If you happen to know someone that would be interested in donating an iron lung, please contact us 361-485-8090. Update: We now have an iron lung thanks to the generosity of TIRR Memorial Herman out of Houston, Texas and thanks to the Cuero Chapter of the Rotary Club paying for the shipping. Also, I would like to say thanks to the Museum Board for their time, patience, and never giving up on the hunt for an iron lung. Currently we are working on building an exhibit to educate the public about Polio. In the photo below, you see one of our docents, Annie Helmuth, inside the iron lung we have on display.
The Museum in General
The museum has countless diverse and unique artifacts dating back into the mid 1800's. It is our goal to learn the stories behind them and to share them with you. Soon we plan to add QR codes to help store the information we find and for our visitors to be able to access it.
