Three Schools... Now One History Museum

West Bay Common School Children's Museum is a project of the League City Historical Society and is located in League City's historic district nestled among the live oaks and historic homes. We are a local history museum with an eclectic collection of League City artifacts and education memoriabilia from all over the country. We are free for visitors of all ages. We provide visitors the opportunity to share in the history of our schools, our town and our community with a free brief docent talk.

Or this could be your classroom… for public schools, private schools, homeschools, seniors, scouts, family groups or special meetings or parties. Choose a date and come to experience a day at school in the 1890s and plan a picnic lunch. Advanced reservations are required for groups of 15 or more for schoolhouse sessions. There is a $10 reservation fee hold the date(s) and supplies. Sessions cost $5 per person.

When you register for a 1898 Schoolhouse Session, the program includes a pen & ink lesson, math, Spelling and history lessons on lap slates and a spelling bee. The group then goes to our Historic Bus Barn for the recess portion of the program to learn about outhouses, play games of the 1890's and explore the life and times of this town through a fascinating display of artifacts and exhibits.

Tour the Icehouse/Barbershop and listen to the history of our town. Visit our Peddlers Corner Gift Shop to purchase souvenirs and gifts. Afterwards, plan a picnic lunch at League Park or at one of the near-by Tea Rooms or Restaurants.
