The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council Goodykoontz Museum of Girl Scouts History highlights the history of Girl Scouts of the USA and the San Jacinto Council located in Houston, Texas.

Named after Lifetime Girl Scout, historian and philanthropist, Dorothy Goodykoontz, this one-of-a-kind facility opened its doors in 2007.

Visitors can take their own self-guided tour or be guided by one of the museum’s docents or volunteer historians. Begin a visit with an introduction to Girl Scout founder Juliette Gordon Low or view The Golden Eaglet, one of the first promotional silent movies ever produced that promoted Girl Scouting in 1918.

Work your way through the large timeline panels and glass display cases that include troop scrapbooks, old photos, a series of Girl Scout dolls and dozens of other artifacts collected all over the world that represent the evolution of the Girl Scout brand. In addition, visitors can try on vintage uniforms and imagine what it was like to be a Girl Scout in decades past or pull out a Discovery Box to learn a new activity.
