“Excellent free museum in Lubbock TX”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Millions of years ago, dinosaurs roamed the Lubbock area. The museum has life size exhibits of the dinosaur bones discovered in the area. Admission to the museum is FREE. There is also a planetarium next to the museum.

“NY Visitor Enjoyed the Museum”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Recently we had a visitor from NY who had never been out of the "big city". He enjoyed the museum and was amazed at our collections. He especially enjoyed the display of Indian artifacts. He was especially impressed with the 'lack of huge crowds". He wants to visit Texas again because of the Museum of Texas Tech.

“Red Raider Orientation”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Didn't actually go into museum to visit (website wouldn't pull up just Texas Tech University) but we did drive by it during our weekend in Lubbock to attend orientation. The campus is beautiful, very pretty & clean...felt quite safe while walking around campus.

“FAMILY FUN FRIDAY NIGHTS”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

This place is so much fun. I love the First Friday Art Trials. This was our second time. We ended up at the Moody Planetarium and saw a lazer light show featuring THE BEATLES. It was amazing. Then we were treated to Free Pizza after the show. I love the "Little Black Dress" exhibit. I think this is a super fun place.
