Mardi Gras Celebrations have been an important part of Galveston County's history for many years.  These celebrations often included parties featuring elaborate gowns and capes. The museum has many splendid examples including this beautiful "Queen's" cape donated by Libby Moody Thompson that she wore in 1939. This is one of many Mardi Gras artifacts exhibited.
