The Museum of TTU became “official” in 1990, and has been going on strong since with an array of exhibits. The museum is home to ancient Indian art, sculptures, dinosaurs, Western art, pictures, and more. There are travelling and permament exhibits that are informative and well presented. Some examples of current and previous exhibits are textiles and pottery from the Navajo Nation, photos in WW2 pertaining to Lubbock, Covering America in the 1950’s and 1960’s, clothing, President Lincoln archived photos, historic toys, and more. The best part of the museum is the planetarium. View a fully digital show, such as “Black Holes,” or enjoy a full-dome laser show. Admission to the museum is free (donations encouraged), and the planetarium is only $5 or less.
