“beautiful scenic rose garden”

The history of the Texas Rose Festival and rose industry are chronicled in the Tyler Rose Museum. Interactive exhibits draw you in and make you part of the excitement. Hear the marching band as the floats pass by in the Parade Room.  Listen to the recorded voices of former Rose Queens describe their "royal" experience. Beautiful hand-sewn gowns dating from 1935 share display space with bejeweled crowns and scepters. The "Attic of Memories", a favorite of many museum visitors, feature antiques an poignant memorabilia donated from the private collections of local residents. In the tradition of the best Smithsonian displays, "The Attic" gives visitors a realistic glimpse of life in Smith County throughout the past hundred years. Steamer trunks and faded hat boxes display dated treasures, while audio tapes describe how these items relate to unforgettable Rose Festival moments.  The museum is located in the Rose Garden Center. Hours are: Tuesday - Friday, 9 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; and Sunday 1:30 - 4:30 p.m.
