  • Absolutely love this place, have been going here since I was 6 years old. I'm glad I can bring my daughter's here and they enjoy it as much as I do.
  • Excellent exhibits! Went with a private school and the children enjoyed the time. I will be going back with my husband to enjoy more. đŸ˜„
  • Great world class exhibits. Natural and human history, modern and Western art, special exhibitions, now one on the photography of Russell Lee from his 1940 New Deal FSA photography of Pie Town, New Mexico and much more. It captivated David and I for a good 2 hours.
  • Great place for a family day! Staff is very helpful and friendly. They use the space they have very well and, I am always excited to go!
  • This place is fantastic. There's so little to do in Lubbock, and even less when you have no money. This place is free and informative, and you can take a good hour or so looking at the interesting exhibits. The theater is outstanding as well. My family and I have gone to many shows here over the years.
