Central Texas is a region in the U.S. state of Texas. It is roughly bordered by Greater San Antonio to the Texas Hill Country to McLennan County to Washington County.

The list of museums in Texas encompasses museums defined for this context as institutions (including nonprofit organizations, government entities, and private businesses) that collect and care for objects of cultural, artistic, scientific, or historical interest and make their collections or related exhibits available for public viewing. Also included are non-profit art galleries and exhibit spaces. Closed museums and museums that exist only in cyberspace (i.e., virtual museums) are not included.
