Rose Museum & Gift Shop
The history of the Texas Rose Festival and rose industry are chronicled in the Tyler Rose Museum. Interactive exhibits draw you in and make you part of the excitement. Hear the marching band as the floats pass by in the Parade Room. Listen to the recorded voices of former Rose Queens describe their "royal" experience. Beautiful hand-sewn gowns dating from 1935 share display space with bejeweled crowns and scepters. Texas Rose Festival Logo
