Villa Antigua Museums Protocol
Staff is required to wear masks. Visitors will be required to wear masks upon entry and at all times during the visit. No mask, no entry.
Please note that we will be a cashless establishment during this time to ensure patron and staff safety. To minimize contact, only Credit/Debit Cards will be accepted at this time.
Hand sanitizer is available at the entrance and visitors are encouraged to use it when entering and leaving the museum. Cleaning staff will also be sanitizing high-touch areas before, during and after hours of operation.
Maintaining Social Distance
To help maintain social distancing the museum we are limiting occupancy 10 visitors at a time.
The Webb County Heritage Foundation works to preserve and protect the architectural and cultural character of Laredo and its historic environs. One of the primary ways that the Webb County Heritage Foundation fulfills this mission is through the interpretation of its collections at its two museum sites, The Republic of the Río Grande® Museum and the Villa Antigua Border Heritage Museum. By bringing visitors to historic downtown Laredo, these properties serve as unique tourism venues while introducing guests to the Webb County Heritage Foundation’s outstanding historical collections and visiting shows.
