Pleasant surprise right on the Tech campus.

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

What great exhibits. Even dinosaurs. Changing exhibits. There is more than one can see in one visit if you do it right.

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.

When I say artifacts, I am saying a general term to mean art, history, anthropology, paleontology, ethnology, cultural objects, planetarium, etc. This general museum includes something that everyone of all ages would like.

The museum has two types of exhibits. A large permanent exhibit and traveling or temporary exhibits. Because of this you can always be sure you will see more traditional Southwest works of art and often get to see unique exhibits that are temporarily being displayed. The temporary exhibits can be anything from sculpture made entirely of crayons, to large stuffed... More

Beautiful facility. We saw an exhibit of quilts, mostly antique and a small exhibit called 'Open Road' which was interesting. There was also an interactive exhibit which gave the viewer the opportunity to choose from among three titles for each photo. The museum also has a planetarium which we did not visit as of this writing.

I have been going to this museum since I was a little kid. Excellent exhibits for a museum of its size. Great for kids. Don't miss the Ranching Heritage Center right next door.

Wish we would've had more time to spend. We went only for the planetarium and were surprised at all the things there were to see, including dinosaur skeletons!! Expected Texas Tech history but that's NOT what this was!!
