To celebrate our daughter's 15th birthday, we drove from Dallas to Waco to enjoy the Gaine's family "Magnolia" empire. Before returning home, we stopped by the Mayborn Museum to discern if it was worth seeing. It was! Being from San Diego where cool museums abound,...More

Rather sparse exhibit. Included about 30 exhibit cases, most of them waist-high stands with about 2 ft x 2 ft top surface area and containing from 1 to 5 or 6 items such as hairpin, soup bowl, shoe, etc. All enclosed in plexiglass. And no...More
