The Cuero Heritage Museum, located in the Cuero Federal Building, was the former Post Office built in 1915. The Museum offers many wonders and is dedicated to celebrating the people of Cuero and their unique heritage. Visit the permanent and rotating exhibits to visually explore the history of this quaint, yet fascinating town.

Numerous permanent captivating collections include, Cuero made famous by its "Gobbler Pride"  and love of the hometown football team, "The History of Cuero Gobbler Football". When you walk through, you may just hear, "Go Mean Green" in the background and the crowd cheering. Another permanent collection upstairs features over 2,300 delightful reamers in every shape and design you can imagine lends way to juicing in a new light. The glamorous and glittery yet infamous "Turkey Trot Exhibit" will leave you in awe, now with a lush Turkish Palace. The Coca Cola Exhibit will leave you craving a coke, and the WWII Exhibit will wow you with local heros and the story of Brayton Flying Field. The other permanent and rotating exhibits showcase adventures around every corner.
