Pearce Museum

The mission of the Pearce Museum at Navarro College is to preserve, collect, and interpret the history of the American Civil War and the art of the American West.

They wish to preserve and interpret as fully as possible the history of the American Civil War and the people involved – North and South, men and women, children and adults, leaders and common citizens; and through the Museum’s Western Art collection preserve and interpret art which depicts either the historic or modern American West. The staff and volunteers at the college are dedicated to the visitor experience and committed to excellence in every aspect of its educational programs and collections management.

The Civil War collection at the Pearce Museum has more than 15,000 documents as well as a number of photographs and three-dimensional artifacts that directly relate to the period 1861 – 1865 and are original to that time period, or were written or made within the life of a participant in the American Civil War.
