Not a large museum, but great dinosaur displays and some nice artwork. I especially liked the New Mexico pottery exhibit. Well worth an hour of your time with children.

Texas Tech Museum has a great dinosaur exhibit that it sure to entertain kids and adults! The Lubbock history section is interesting. I always enjoy the special exhibits! Nice but small gift shop. Well worth the time and it is free!

No fee for entry, but donations are welcome. The planetarium and laser shows do cost money, but you can check the website for dates, times and prices.
