The McAllen heritage Center (MHC) - Museum of McAllen history opened to the public during June 2008. We welcome you to visit us and enjoy learning about McAllen's colorful history! We have story-telling sessions, children's activities, an educational "Traveling Trunks" program, and many more projects that are under development.
The museum is located inside the historic old McAllen Post Office building now known as “La Placita”
directly across from JC Penney in downtown McAllen, and is open
Wednesday through Friday from 1pm to 5pm
and Saturday 11am to 4pm
||The MHC "Called to Higher Service" exhibit honoring Valley Country Music icon, Roland Garcia known as "Country Roland" is still on display at MHC! This exhibit which honors impactful McAllen or Valleyites that have passed was opened in February 2014 to a standing room only crowd and has been very popular this year. The exhibit will remain for a short period so please make plans to come by the museum soon!
