About us

We provide family programs, summer camps, food events, concerts, history lectures, and tours- all to celebrate and share the earliest history of Austin.

Our Mission

The French Legation Museum promotes understanding and appreciation of Texas history and culture through preservation of the legacy, structure, and collections of the French Legation to the Republic of Texas.


We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that stands as a reminder of life in the Republic of Texas era. The property is owned by the State of Texas, and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas are the custodians of the site. The Museum is operated by a professional staff.
