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!

TTU Museum has a great collection of dinosaur and other exhibits to include Native American. Great place for family, friends and learning experience for kids. AND, you have to visit the Moody Planetarium. I went there when I was in elementary school and fell in love with then place, even better now. All kids should see this. It was very... More

As an alumn of Texas Tech University (BFA Studio Art '73) and one who has the greatest respect for the School of Art, as well as for my esteemed mentors Professors Emeritii Lyn Kreneck and Terry Morrow! When I was in the program, however, the Museum was just a tiny glint in someone's eye. I confess being so happy to... More

Great collection! Loved the archeology of Texas best. The dinosaurs that roamed in this area were amazing! I liked the Native american exhibits. This would be a great place for kids.

We went to explore but found they were mostly empty. They were getting the galleries ready for new exhibits so they only had 2 areas open at the time. Still interesting and a fun way to pass an hour looking at fossils, pottery and artwork

This museum had at least a little of everything: regional natural history (including dinosaurs), local history, American art, and international art and artifacts. We ended up spending more time than I expected--a good hour and a half. And that included just skimming a couple of galleries. I especially enjoyed some of the western art and the art by illustrator/artist N.C.... More

If you like Remington pieces or paintings that capture life of the American West and cowboys, this museum is for you! There are all sorts of artifacts to look at. Everything from early Native American pieces, to ancient animals who roamed this land before settlers arrived, to daily living pieces like clothing, machinery and work implements. I have been coming... More
