It's a really well done museum, with a very big fossil section and a nice section devoted to the texas wildlife. I suggest buying the tickets online

We went because we were told they had an amazing mineral exhibit. We were checking prices and found that it was free on Thursdays from 2-5 so we planned out visit for then. That was our mistake. Three hours is not enough time to see this museum. We picked just a few exhibits from the offerings and still had to rush through. The gems and minerals were stunning and they display them in a dark room with focused lighting to make them shine. The Egyptian exhibit was amazing with a lot of informative signage. We enjoyed the energy exhibits. Just wish we'd had time to see the chemistry and paleontology exhibits. I was disappointed in that they didn't have handout maps available. They directed you to maps at the elevators which weren't helpful since you couldn't carry them with you and they were confusing. And each elevator would only take you to the next floor and they were scattered about so you couldn't consistently find them. I understand they were trying to keep a flow to your path, but we knew we had limited time and wanted to start at the top floor and work our way down through the exhibits. The exhibits we were able to see were amazing but it would be helpful to have maps or better directional signage and elevators that let you control completely where you want to go.

Fun day at the museum. We visited the museum and was very pleased with the visit. 4 floors of many different exhibits including Egyptians, Dinosaurs, Space, Mammals, Texas theme, Mummies, Faberge egg, precious-stones, and others. Planetarium show is nice but short. Definitely see the 3D movie. We saw the Barrier Reef which was really good. Food court available with indoor and outdoor seating. Parking lot nearby. Beautiful park across the street with a zoo. Perfect half day visit.

Very informative and well thought out displays. Many artifacts to show things of the Roman Empire and this dark time in human history. The bloodlust of the spectators is evident by the length of time that this gruesome practice was allowed to continue.
