  • This is one of the better yet less unknown attractions in the city. It is one of my favorite museums. The museum starts back as far as 13,000 BC and covers all of the inhabitants of Texas, from the early Native Americans to the many different cultures that immigrated here from the all around the world. There are several areas that clearly depict the various periods and cultures. I would recommend this museum to any tourist and local who hasn't seen it in many years.
  • This is one of the better yet under appreciated attractions in the city and certainly one of my favorite museums. Housed in a very uniquely shaped structure, the institute has been around almost 50 years. I used to visit as a child but was always rushed through a visit by either family or my school. As an adult I was finally able to do a solo trip and take as much time as I wanted to fully digest and appreciate everything that was presented.Starting back as far as 13,000 BC the museum covers all of the inhabitants of Texas from the early "Indians" to the subsequent cultures that immigrated here from the many diverse parts of our globe. There are several areas that clearly delineate the various periods and cultures. There are many hands on areas and some clever constructs which helps reinforce the message they are trying to convey.
