The Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau has a wonderful program called the Official Beaumont Birdies Passport! My grandchildren and I enjoyed going to eight different museums in Beaumont, Texas, getting our passports stamped, and then selecting a plush toy bird typical of the birds of southeast Texas with its own call, name, profile, and favorite local hangout. The museums were all incredibly interesting and fun! We went to the following:
Art Museum of Southeast Texas
Beaumont Children’s Museum
Fire Museum of Texas
Spindletop Gladys City
Energy Museum of Southeast Texas
Lamar University Reardon Honors College
