Explore the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum in Houston

Not far from our Houston Heights apartments is a unique museum that highlights Black history and the United States military. It is called the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum, and it preserves and promotes the history and outstanding contributions of a group known as the Buffalo Soldiers through fascinating exhibits and fun programs. Here is some of what you can discover during your visit:

Cathay Williams

Believe it or not, there was a female Buffalo Soldier. Cathay Williams worked as an Union Army cook when she saw the Buffalo Soldiers. Deciding to enlist, she changed her name to William Cathay. She served for two years before her identity was revealed during a medical examination. Cathay was discharged without a pension. It's believed she passed away before the turn of the century.

Reenactment Program

The museum offers fun reenactments that bring history to life. You can watch as actor Wayne Dehart perform A Soldier's Story. He has been a part of Houston's theater scene for over 25 years and has also appeared in movies and television shows like Breaking Bad and Walker, Texas Ranger. Call the museum to make a reservation to see Wayne or one of the other talented actors.

Programs

Throughout the year, the museum hosts programs designed to educate, entertain, and inform. One of the highlights includes Paint Your History. Led by a skilled artist, participants may paint an artifact from the collection and more. All skill levels are welcome to join in the fun.
