Always a joy to visit. Staff always friendly & helpful. A "training" museum for students who want to work in this field, but you'd never know it, due to their extreme professionalism.

I enjoyed the museum. The collection is very random, but still a fun afternoon. Great for kids as as there is a children's area.

Have been here many times in the past and always worth the visit. This trip saw a few galleries undergoing new exhibits, so they were off limits----- but the staple show is still there! And as a 1-2 hour freebee- you cant miss it!!

Interesting art exhibits that include educational information. Who knew Texas Tech had a presence in Antarctica? Plenty of parking and friendly staff as well.

If you're in the area you should check out this museum. It's a really well setup museum. The dinosaur exhibit was awesome. They have a lot of artifacts some going into the B.C.'s. They even have a pretty cool exhibit of fashion from the 20's up to the 70's or so. They also have a weather exhibit and plenty other... More

Excellent small museum with interesting temporary exhibits... We really enjoyed visiting the museum for a special exhibit. It is small but well done and worth a visit if you are looking for something to do in Lubbock.

We always have fun here. From dinosaurs to art to traveling exhibitions and a planetarium, this museum has it all! Be sure and see the virtual globe...it is a kid favorite. They also offer events and special days for kids throughout the year that are fun and mostly free.
