1911 Post Office building. It's a great place to discover historical artifacts, photographs, documents, diaries, manuscripts, maps, archival newspapers, and land records. Collin County History Museum makes learning a fun experience and provides valuable research information for genealogists, historians, authors, teachers and students.
McKinney Then and Now
The Collin County History Museum invites you to our McKinney Then and Now exhibit. This exhibit allows visitors the opportunity to step back in time and experience what life was like in the early days of McKinney. Historic photos, artifacts, and set designs of historic buildings help tell the stories of the people, places, and events that helped shape McKinney.
The museum is open to the general public weekly on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm.
Special tours can be arranged on Monday through Wednesday by contacting the museum.
Parking for the museum is available in front of the museum. A new 3-story parking garage is available directly across the street and is accessible from Chestnut Street.
