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

On occasion there is a good temporary display, and the area dedicated to the history of Lubbock is interesting, but the staff is disengaged and a lot of the regular collection is uninspiring. I did enjoy the "Little Black Dress" display although most of the dresses were full-length gowns and there was an exhibit made up of press photos of... More

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
