The PPHM is located in Canyon TX 15 miles south of Amarillo on the
West Texas A&M University campus. Thanks to Hattie Anderson, a history teacher at the university who had a vision to preserve the history of the Texas Panhandle Plains, the museum became a reality in 1933.
Through generous donations over the years of artifacts and money, the museum is the largest history musuem in Texas comprising over 285,000 Sq Ft and over 2 million artifacts and items of history spanning 14,000 years.
The exhibits cover art, paleontology,agriculture,petroleum.transportation, geology,Indian history and much more. There is also a large automobile collection, pioneer town replica,extensive military uniform collection and windmill exhibit.
I would definitely recommend stopping for a visit.
