 Cuero Heritage Museum

The Cuero Heritage Museum, located in the Cuero Federal Building, was the former Post Office built in 1915. The Museum offers many wonders and is dedicated to celebrating the people of Cuero and their unique heritage. Visit the permanent and rotating exhibits to visually explore the history of this quaint, yet fascinating town.

Numerous permanent captivating collections include, Cuero made famous by its "Gobbler Pride"  and love of the hometown football team, "The History of Cuero Gobbler Football". When you walk through, you may just hear, "Go Mean Green" in the background and the crowd cheering. Another permanent collection upstairs features over 2,300 delightful reamers in every shape and design you can imagine lends way to juicing in a new light. The glamorous and glittery yet infamous "Turkey Trot Exhibit" will leave you in awe, now with a lush Turkish Palace. The Coca Cola Exhibit will leave you craving a coke, and the WWII Exhibit will wow you with local heros and the story of Brayton Flying Field. The other permanent and rotating exhibits showcase adventures around every corner. 

So visit and learn why this historic Texas town in the Heart of South Texas is anything but ordinary and everything extraordinary.  City of Cuero owned and operated.

Reason for the Season

Christ Collection

The Christ Collection is on loan to the museum from Guy Dolan and Carl Van Dolzer of Cuero. Together they have accumulated various pieces of what will be on exhibit. This exquisite collection includes statues, figurines and crucifixes made from porcelain, glass, metal and wood. Original paintings that span from the 1700s to present day will also be on display until January 12, 2019.

Dolan is currently chairman of the Cuero Heritage Museum, as well as serving on various local boards including Camel House, the Cuero Rotary Club and the Cuero Chamber of Commerce. Van Dolzer manages Dolan Rental Properties as well as supporting Dolan’s community activities. Both are avid collectors of unique and interesting artifacts.

An opening reception for the exhibit will be held at the CHM on November 29th from 5 to 7 pm.
