The Women's Museum

The Women's Museum: An Institute for the Future was a museum located inside Fair Park in Dallas, Texas. On October 5, 2011, the museum announced it would close on October 31, 2011, due to lack of funds.[4]

Foundation of Women's Resources[edit]

This sparked an interest in the mother to collaborate with the women's resources to investigate the nature of women's participation in the development of Texas. This resulted in Texas Women's History Project and the museum exhibit, Texas Women - A Celebration of History, which toured throughout Texas in 1980 and 1981. This display is now on permanent display at Texas Woman's University.[5]
