The Texas Museum of Science & Technology currently has three exhibit spaces as well as our planetarium. 

Timewalk

Explore our permanent Timewalk exhibition, journeying from the deep past of the Precambrian Era, through the Jurassic, into the Holocene Period—meeting some extraordinary individuals along the way.

As you stroll through over 4 billion years, you will encounter ancient, many-legged trilobites, ancient animals that once lived in what is now Texas, and the skull of the fiercely toothed, infamous Tyrannosaurus Rex. You will have the opportunity for a close and personal encounter with “Lucy”, the famous Ethiopian australopithecine.  Rounding out your walk, you’ll come face to face with the full skeleton of “Emily”, our saber-tooth cat. You’ll find many more toothed, armored, horned and winged creatures from Earth’s past along your journey, so come introduce yourself to them all!

Leonardo da Vinci: Machines in Motion

 

From now until January 2018, TXMOST is thrilled to host this traveling exhibition.  Created as a partnership between the Leonardo da Vinci museum in Florence, Italy and Evergreen Exhibitions, this is a fascinating look at the archetypal Renaissance Man and his inventions.  Featuring approximately 40 interactive pieces and other stunning recreations of his designs, this exhibition gives you the chance to explore some of da Vinci’s works as recreated by modern-day engineers and artisans.  Machines in Motion will be at TXMOST for a limited time and is ideal for all ages.
