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.

Didn't actually go into museum to visit (website wouldn't pull up just Texas Tech University) but we did drive by it during our weekend in Lubbock to attend orientation. The campus is beautiful, very pretty & clean...felt quite safe while walking around campus.

This place is so much fun. I love the First Friday Art Trials. This was our second time. We ended up at the Moody Planetarium and saw a lazer light show featuring THE BEATLES. It was amazing.

The Museum is free (donations accepted) and has permanent displays plus featured exhibits that rotate. My favorite part of the Museum is the Planetarium. It has been upgraded several times over the years and is very impressive. There are both planetarium and laser shows. These shows cost a few dollars, but are well worth it. Check out the museum's website... More

It's free,donations only. Kids love to go here and never tire of seeing the dinosaur exhibits. I love to go just to take a step out of the ordinary of Lubbock. They constantly have events that are interesting. Check website to see what's coming up.

This museum is not huge, but covers a nice range of topics. I would recomend it. The price was right also. We didnt have time to go to the planetarium but we plan on it if we go to Lubbock again.
