Wheeler Historical Museum

Welcome to Wheeler Historical Museum and thank you for taking time to visit our site! Our museum board is passionate about Wheeler County Texas and dedicated to preserving its rich history. Captain Alan L. Bean, the fourth man to walk on the moon, was born in Wheeler Texas on March 15, 1932. The Alan Bean exhibit has several of his personal artifacts on display. Come see the 9' bronze statue of Captain Bean in his space suit!

We are a Commemorative Partner for the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War as well as the 100th Anniversary of World War I. Stop by and learn about the brave hardworking pioneers that ventured to the frontier for a better life. They faced many challenges including Indian raids, harsh weather, The Dust Bowl and The Great Depression.
