Explore Dallas County History From         Pre-history To Present Day!

Who knew history could be so much fun?! The Old Red Museum of Dallas County History and Culture sees thousands of students each year. Students walk through history while learning about the people, stories, and events that shaped the cities and towns that call Dallas County home.  Old Red places Dallas County in the national stories of early settlement, immigration, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, World Wars, and the technology boom.

At the Old Red Museum, one of our missions is to reach out to our community and share the rich history of Dallas County with its members, including school groups, youth programs, adults, educators and the rest of the public. Utilizing our galleries, with four mini-theaters, interactive touch-screen presentations, and our Education Center, we educate visitors through numerous activities and lessons. With seemingly endless new ways to learn and interact with history, our educational programs and tours will leave you with a stronger connection to Dallas County.

Grades K-12
Students walk through history while learning about the people, stories and events that shaped the cities and towns that call Dallas County home. Pre-historic fossils, early settlement, law and politics, transportation, entertainment, medicine, immigration, religion, education, technology, sports, music and civil rights are just a few of the engaging themes students will explore at the Old Red Museum of Dallas County History & Culture.

Upon visiting the Museum, students will participate in many activities, including:

Museum Galleries – Four interactive galleries highlight the rich history of Dallas County through four theaters, interactive touch-screen video presentations  and more than 1,000 artifacts, primary sources and photographs. Exciting items like early fossils, a mammoth tusk, a high wheel bicycle, Clyde Barrow’s gun and the first integrated circuit bring history to life. The Old Red Museum places Dallas County in the national stories of early settlement, immigration, the roaring 20’s, the Great Depression, World Wars and the technology boom.
