Visit TNSC's Texas Memorial Museum

Texas Natural Science Center's exhibit hall is the Texas Memorial Museum located on The University of Texas at Austin campus in Austin, Texas. Exhibits focus on dinosaurs and fossils, Texas wildlife, gems and minerals, and a working Paleontology Lab where visitors can interact with scientists as they prepare fossil finds. Spotlighted in the exhibits are spectacular specimens found in Texas, including the largest flying creature ever found—the Texas Pterosaur, with a wingspan of nearly 40 feet–and the 30-foot Mosasaur that swam the shallow sea that once covered most of the state.
