Best Place To Let the Kids Wander: Texas Memorial Museum at UT

The museum has four floors of things that kids of all ages love, from the largest flying creature ever discovered (the remains of the Texas Pterosaur) to fossil digs the entire family can enjoy. The exhibit halls are a great place to spend a rainy afternoon or escape a summer heat wave. You don’t have to be a student of natural history, paleontology, geology, history, or anthropology to enjoy the free show, and it might just inspire a budding young scientist. Closed major holidays and during UT home games.
