I loved this museum so much, I returned for a second day. There is a wonderful natural history section with animals of Texas, past and present. Really interesting dinosaur exhibit. There is interactive display of plate tectonics that mesmerized me for about an hour. And then, there is fabulous art exhibits that focus on artists of TX NM AZ. Texas... More

Always knowing this museum was here in Lubbock but never really taking time to appreciate it, we came in one cool afternoon for something to occupy out time. We were not lead astray by our trip. Only having time for part of the multi gallery museum, we were able to see a very wide selection of Native American pottery and... More

Free admission and wonderful exhibits. You couldn't really ask for anything more to to with your family. They have wonderful art on display, endangered and near extinct species, dinosaurs, Native American history, WWII history and African history exhibits. They have discovery centers for children and hands-on stations to help teach children about history and science. It was a free date... More

You can't compare this to a world class museum like the British Museum or anything like that. However, it has free entry and a wide variety of exhibits. The first, central gallery has displays of full-size T. rex and Triceratops skeletal replicas. Then the other galleries have lots of art collections and other topics related to Lubbock and Texas -...

This museum has no admission fee! It features an excellent collection of dinosaur displays. It also has an extensive display of historical and modern Native American pottery and art objects.

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.

My wife and I went to the museum at Texas Tech University and it is truly magnificent! It's clean and beautiful, with very nice exhibits. Love the taxidermy exhibit, especially the bears. 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

What a great museum for every age. The exhibits are informative and interesting and there are many scheduled activities for kids in craft/ project rooms. During the year there are many special events and programs at the museum for kids and adults. You will definitely want to go more than once Staff are friendly and answer as many questions that...
