The Austin Museum Partnership is a consortium of Austin-area museums organized in 1998 to promote collaborations for the mutual benefit of the public and the museums.
Rooted in the resources and reputation of The University of Texas at Austin, the Texas Natural Science Center (TNSC) works to create awareness, understanding and appreciation of the past, present and future of biological diversity, especially that of the state of Texas.
Texas Memorial Museum, Texas Natural Science Center’s exhibit hall, is open to the public and admission is FREE. Exhibits focus on fossils and prehistoric life; native Texas wildlife; gems, minerals and meteorites; and biological evolution. Texas Natural Science Center hosts a variety of programs for children and adults throughout the year. With guided tours, teacher training workshops, weekend family programs, special exhibit openings, and events like Family Fossil Fun Day, Identification Day and Darwin Day, there is something for everyone.
