The Museum of Texas Tech University is awesome. It is free. Great exhibits. The grounds are beautiful. It should be on your list to do when you visit Lubbock. A great asset to Lubbock.

A wonderful addition to our community. A great place to take the kids and grandkids and expose them to new and exciting adventures. Also a good place to work on "manners", kinda like being quite and respectful at the library.

The best part is that the museum has free entry. The Planetarium is not worth the $5. It was blurry and dim, and the star gazing show was... More

I have visited a number of times and keep returning to give it another try because it is ranked so high on the "things to do" list for Lubbock. However I have to really wonder how it ever gets the ranking. Mediocre exhibits, poor story telling and a crazy layout all combine to make it a fairly poor experience every... More

Millions of years ago, dinosaurs roamed the Lubbock area. The museum has life size exhibits of the dinosaur bones discovered in the area. Admission to the museum is FREE. There is also a planetarium next to the museum.

Recently we had a visitor from NY who had never been out of the "big city". He enjoyed the museum and was amazed at our collections. He especially enjoyed the display of Indian artifacts. He was especially impressed with the 'lack of huge crowds". He wants to visit Texas again because of the Museum of Texas Tech.
