The Museum of South Texas History staff is hosting “Virtual MOSTHistory Happy Hour” sessions during the Covid-19 pandemic. These sessions are aired on Facebook Live, which encourages public engagement and furthers museum’s mission. Museum staff interviews guest speakers from across South Texas, the state and country on a variety of historical topics that include prohibition, milestones and more.

If you do not use Facebook, you can enjoy the recorded sessions below on this page. If you wish to know the date of the next Virtual MOSTHistory Happy Hour, please visit the museum’s calendar here and/or view the museum’s Facebook page for the latest information. Thank you for your support!
