Spent a great afternoon last week. Staff was helpful and courteous. The diversity of the displays was terrific. It did seem like some of the individual displays could have been identified a little better, but overall a great experience.

Free to the public and the exibits do change with things coming in for display. A wonderful way to spend part of a day and for out of town visitors. You can't beat free.

We visited this and really enjoyed our experience. The exhibit is apparently always changing and we loved their endangered species exhibit area. Very informative and educational. Their art gallery is filled with very neat artwork. You can't beat the price, either---free!

Free. The university had an extensive Ansel Adams collection on display. Fantastic. There was also a very good exhibit on Antarctica explorations that the university had participated in over the years. There were other exhibits: paintings, pottery, animals, and dinosaurs.

After living in Lubbock for 20 plus years, I have found West Texas history and the museums of Lubbock very interesting and well done.

Awesome dinosaur display. Very interesting history of Texas Tech expeditions to Antarctica. We saw temporary exhibits of Ansel Adams photography and needle arts. Lots to see here!

The changing exhibits keep me going whenever I can get there. The Antarctica exhibit was excellent. My husband went to see it in April 2015 and then took the grandsons in June 2015.

Tech Museum has had some very interesting exhibits and art, it features probably one of the best Viet Nam museums in the country. Always check to see what exhibits are current and coming, also check to see who may be speaking as they bring in guest speakers on topics all the time.

When we visited, there was an AMAZING Native American art and history exhibit with incredible insights from a cultural anthropologist. The exhibit does change frequently, so feel visit the website to find the exhibit that fits your interests!
