"This (museum) was one of the highlights of our three days along the Colorado."
Located in the quaint community of Marble Falls, The Falls on the Colorado Museum is described by visitors as a marvelous little gem which would make town founder Adam Rankin Johnson proud. Currently the museum is housed in what was once a university building that Johnson helped found in 1891. The nearly 6,000 square feet museum proudly displays artifacts from prehistoric era to modern relevant events of today.
The museum boasts an extensive collection of pictures portraying life in the early 1900s. To accompany this collection, the kitchen without electricity display takes visitors back to a simpler time. Other displays include the always popular farm and ranch life, history of the schools of Marble Falls, geology, lakes, rivers, and dams. Visitors will also love to check out the Native American artifacts and our beloved Rockie, who is a 700-year-old bison.
We look forward to welcoming our visitors and sharing our history!
