Find Historical Artifacts at the Old Red Museum of Dallas

An easy drive from Mosaic Dallas is a destination that strives to educate visitors about the rich cultural, economic, political, and social history of the Dallas County area.

We're talking about the Old Red Museum of Dallas County History & Culture, and it features an array of fascinating historical artifacts.

The museum is housed in the beautifully restored Old Red Courthouse that dates back to 1892, and permanent exhibits include:

Trading Center Gallery

When the first two railroads arrived in the area in 1872 and 1873, Dallas County became an important regional center for trade. Its population grew, and towns such as Irving and Richardson turned into trading locations for nearby farmers. Gallery highlights include a high-wheeled bicycle and a Good Roads Tour trophy made by Linz Brothers.

Big "D" Gallery

Between 1918 and 1945, Dallas gained recognition as well as faced challenges as a major metropolitan area. It was in 1936 when the Texas Centennial Exposition brought headlines to the city, marking the first time that it became nationally significant. As visitors explore this gallery, they'll see the country's first traffic light, a banjo played by blues musicians in Deep Ellum, Clyde Barrow's gun, and so much more.

World Crossroads Gallery

The World Crossroads Gallery covers the years between 1946 and 2007, and tells how the Metroplex blossomed from national significance to international prominence. It became home to professional sports teams, Fortune 500 companies, and a well-known television show known as Dallas. The display includes handcuffs worn by Lee Harvey Oswald, memorabilia from famed athletes, and J.R. Ewing's Stetson hat.
