  • As a lifelong Austenite, I had never been here. I heard of their Texas Wildlife Day and thought it would be a good time to go. They had all sort of displays beside the normal displays for the special ...  more »

  • The basement full of fossils was really neat, but the rest of it felt like it was just a taxidermy showcase and some weird obsession with one species of shark. No displays for information on anything, they instead had you call a number to listen to a recording if you wanted to learn about it, which was all very limited information. I hate to give a bad rating to a museum, but I don't feel like I learned anything here.
  • Great natural sciences museum! It’s not too big, but with the four floors of biological and geological collections, paintings, some interactive exhibits, and the beautiful outdoors on UT Campus, your family will surely have a great time!
  • My favorite museum in Austin. Warm and cozy with many interesting exhibits. Super kid friendly. Dinosaurs and rock collections? Are you kidding me? They also allow you to bring in your nice DSLR cameras to shoot... how cool is that. One of the campus gems that every Austinite should experience... and it costs almost nothing to make a visit.
  • Wonderful, quant and informative for an old school (ha!) Natural History Museum.
  • Quite nice and relatively unknown musuem, I didn't know about this place until I came for a class. It's free admission for UT students and the gift shop is fairly priced. The staff are nice and polite as well. I'll be back!
