Mission and Profile
The Fort Bend County Museum Association preserves historical resources by inspiring and educating the public for the purpose of strengthening awareness and appreciation of cultural heritage for future generations.
The strategic plan compiles all Association activities into five goal areas:

-Community Involvement: To increase public participation
-Communication: To increase awareness of the Association?s presence and purpose

The George Ranch Historical Park, a living history partnership of the Fort Bend Museum Association and The George Foundation, helps connect Texans and guests from other states and countries to the region's remarkable history through the stories of four generations who shaped what we now call the George Ranch.
The Park aims to educate people of all ages about Texas history. We develop programming that connects and inspires learners of all ages. We believe that understanding the past is a key to succeeding in the future, and that children and other open-minded people are ideally suited to grasp to the distinctions between the modern world and the ways things were done before.
