We recently visited the museum of the Southwest in Midland. The paintings on display are great and enjoyed seeing the Kentucky Derby items. The observatory had several broken displays and needs attention. We were disappointed overall.

We have been going to this museum all of life but they have updated it a ton and change out exhibits often. From science to history and art they will have fun with all the hands on material.

The house is simply an art gallery. There were a couple of other buildings but did not look interesting. We were not provided a map so not sure if missed anything. It was Saturday so the Farmers Market helped with the atmosphere.

When here on a trip to visit my niece and her family, it's not real big and small children will enjoy; her family liked it, as her four children were all under 10 years of age.

I'm not seeing any special events outside or normal operating hours. It's the week after Spring Break in Midland, there is very little going between the end of Spring Break and April 1.
