Who We Are
Texas Memorial Museum is an amazing place for visitors of all ages to learn about science and natural history. It features exhibits of the university’s stunning collections of paleontology, geology, and Texas wildlife. As a vital educational resource for all our Texas communities, we are committed to facilitating connections between the public and scientists, introducing university students to the importance of collections, and offering educational opportunities for volunteers and student interns. The Museum is temporarily closed as we undergo much needed repairs and update exhibits to showcase world-class research and collections. We look forward to reopening in 2023 with your help!
What We’re Fundraising For
Texas Memorial Museum provides the unique opportunity for learners of all ages to learn about pterosaurs, dinosaurs, meteorites, wildlife, and many other exciting areas of science and natural history! As we work on updating the Museum to reopen in 2023, we are asking for your support to help us create a variety of new programs, including new exhibits, gallery talks, identifications of natural objects, curriculum guides, and TEKS-aligned activities. Before the pandemic, TMM served more than 34,200 annual visitors, including 8,700+ preK-12 students on organized field trips to the museum. With your help we can continue to create and maintain educational experiences at the museum that are accessible to all.
Donations will help Texas Memorial Museum continue to offer engaging educational programs. Current and future generations of Longhorns will experience the excitement of seeing authentic fossil, mineral, and wildlife specimens on exhibit – inspiring a life-long connection with nature and a respect for science.
Gifts to TMM's Area of Greatest Need support all our efforts to provide the community a place to explore and learn about Texas' natural history. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in 2023!
