Grand Opening showcasing new exhibit of Baseball Legend Nolan Ryan at
Alvin Historical Museum

Alvin Museum Society is excited to announce the grand opening of the Nolan Ryan Exhibit. They will be hosting a grand opening event on April 8th at the Alvin Historical Museum from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. with guest speakers. The public is invited to the opening ceremony, and to take a tour of the exhibit highlighting Ryan’s career and life.

“Many people don’t realize that when the Nolan Ryan Exhibit and Foundation Office at the Nolan Ryan Center at ACC closed, many significant items and memorabilia were given to the Alvin Historical Museum. Our volunteers have been working for months to set up the exhibit for the public to enjoy.”

Donna Starkey, Vice President of Alvin Museum Society

The museum will also be having an online silent auction of a few Nolan Ryan items that were donated. The auction will be open on the day of the event and run for a few weeks. Items can be viewed online or in-person at the museum. There will also be several giveaway items at the grand opening, as well as an opportunity for attendees to enter for a chance to win Astros Tickets.
