Texas Memorial Museum
For those interested in dinosaurs and rocks, this is a great museum for you. Texas Memorial Museum focuses on collections of Texas and the New World, including an extensive Texas Natural History collection and core collections from the 1936 Texas Centennial celebrations. There is a huge variety of artifacts supporting historical and anthropological research, including collections amassed by faculty, staff and students. New artifacts are continuously added, so repeat visits are highly recommended. Admission is free.
The Texas Memorial Museum is absolutely the best in Austin. Admission is always free. There is now a guide by cellphone feature available. If your questions still aren't answered, the museum staff is always willing to assist. I've never been disappointed by any of my numerous visits to this amazing museum. There are exhibits on dinosaurs, geologic formations, and Texas wildlife. There is even a new exhibit on evolution - which I found to be quite unbiased, it simply provided details and facts. You definitely need to visit this place. You won't regret it.
The name is misleading; it makes me think of dull historical whatnot. The TMM is instead a TERRIFFIC little natural science museum packed with enough bones, gems, animals, dinosaurs, bugs and who knows what else to keep you busy and fascinated for hours. I highly recommend it.
