About UT’s Texas Natural Science Center:
The Center encourages awareness of biological diversity through research, exhibits, and educational programming and is made up of the Texas Memorial Museum, the Vertebrate Paleontology Lab, the Non-vertebrate Paleontology Lab, and the Texas Natural History Collections. Our leading-edge research in the disciplines of paleontology, geology, biology, herpetology, ichthyology and entomology has amassed a $4-billion collection of 5.7 million specimens. All exhibits and educational programming are based on these specimens, most of which are from Texas and many of which are unique and irreplaceable. We welcome more than 75,000 visitors to our exhibit hall, the Texas Memorial Museum, annually. We are the leader in science education enrichment for Central Texas, with community outreach including teacher training, school presentations reaching 800+ K-12 students each semester, public events that draw more than 8,000 visitors annually, partnerships with other science organizations, and a website featuring virtual exhibits with educational materials for teachers and leading-edge research data.
