Visit the Texas Memorial Museum

Permanent exhibits include fossils and prehistoric life; native Texas wildlife; gems, minerals and meteorites; and biological evolution. Spotlighted in the museum are spectacular specimens found in Texas, including the largest flying creature ever found—the Texas Pterosaur, with a wingspan of nearly 40 feet, and a 30-foot mosasaur that swam the shallow sea that once covered most of the state.
