This is a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours with old bones, artwork, and special exhibits. I particularly enjoyed the temporary exhibit on chess. I don't even play chess, but the chess sets from around the world were beautifully made. The N.C. Wyeth paintings made to illustrate children's books on exhibit made me want to re-read some of those books. Even if he did not consider his work fine art, the illustrations are attractive and thought-provoking. And worth viewing again and again.
It is always a great deal of fun and very informative to visit The Ranch and Heritage Center at the Texas Tech Museum. If you're a resident of Lubbock or just visiting this is a must-see. Be sure to check for special events like the candlelight tour around the Christmas season it's exquisite!
