In celebration of Austin’s Museum Day Sunday, the French Legation Museum celebrated its grand re-opening.

The museum’s historic house recently underwent a quarter-million dollar structural restoration. The renovation included a gift shop, a new line of items related to the site and kids activities.

On Sunday, participants could enjoy tours, music and food trucks.

The museum is a portal for the city's earliest history.

Austin Museum day features free exhibitions and activities at participating Austin-area museums and cultural sites.
