  • 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.
  • I dislike that most of the dinosaur displays are resin, and not real bones. The Dino displays have also not changed a whole lot over all in the last 20 years. The weather exhibit was interesting, but felt very cramped in the small room they have it crammed into. The Vampire/Werewolf exhibit was interesting. For a small museum over all they make good use of the space they have. I don't recommend seeing the art installation of the CDs on the floor with the flashing lights. Gave me a serious headache and could probably cause a seizure in someone prone to them.
  • I have been coming here for about 20 years and every time I come in town I still Love to stop by and see all the great additions that have been made!
  • I love this place. A great way to spend a day. Helpful and energetic staff. Very clean and well kept even during the construction.
  • Great exhibitions for the children and grown ups too. Had a great time. Definitely recommend.
