Some of the current exhibits include a Jerry Tubbs display, featuring photos and mementos from his football days with the Breckenridge Buckaroos, the University of Oklahoma Sooners and the Dallas Cowboys; a Basil Clemons photography section; an extensive military and veterans exhibit; a Breckenridge High School section, complete with old letter jackets, sweaters and even a 1954-55 BHS cheerleader uniform.

The latest display focuses on the Burch Hotel and includes old photos, linens, keys, stationery, matchbook covers and more.

The museum is funded entirely through donations. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
