For more than 70 years the Museum of the Big Bend has been collecting and exhibiting artifacts of the vast Big Bend region. Encompassing the Davis Mountains to the north and the borderlands of Mexico, the Big Bend has been inhabited for over 11,000 years. Throughout that time, four distinct cultures emerged and shaped the history and heritage of the region. Together with the Center for Big Bend Studies, the Museum of the Big Bend's goal is to capture this human history that reflects contributions of the Native Americans, the Spanish, the Mexicans and the Anglo-Americans. The permanent exhibits at the Museum of the Big Bend are currently under construction, but the temporary exhibit hall is open to the public.
The Mission of the Museum of the Big Bend, a Department of Sul Ross State University, is to serve and educate the public by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting the cultural, historic and natural materials that related to the prehistory, history and cultural diversity of the Big Bend region of Texas and Mexico.
