The Texas Science & Natural History Museum held its grand reopening this weekend.
The nearly 100-year-old museum — formerly known as the Texas Memorial Museum — closed last March for an 18-month renovation, reopening to the public this month with a new look and new exhibits.
Here’s what you can see at the museum:
- A tyrannosaur, partially excavated from Big Bend National Park
- A 33-ft pterosaur skeleton
- An exhibit on Texas’ environmental history, spanning 600 million years
- Fossils of ancient plants and animals
- A geological gallery, complete with meteorites
The museum is open Tuesdays - Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. General admission is $10 — plan your visit.
