This is a wonderful place to spend a couple of hours with old bones, artwork, and special exhibits. I particularly enjoyed the temporary exhibit on chess. I don't even play chess, but the chess sets from around the world were beautifully made. The N.C. Wyeth paintings made to illustrate children's books on exhibit made me want to re-read some of those books. Even if he did not consider his work fine art, the illustrations are attractive and thought-provoking. And worth viewing again and again.

It is always a great deal of fun and very informative to visit The Ranch and Heritage Center at the Texas Tech Museum. If you're a resident of Lubbock or just visiting this is a must-see. Be sure to check for special events like the candlelight tour around the Christmas season it's exquisite!

This place is free admission so there's no excuse not to go there. They have some really extraordinary pieces of art that you must see, and read some of the paintings they have. Great place to take the family and teach them a little history.

My girlfriend and I went to the museum, and it was a fun way to spend a warm afternoon. Plus the museum is free. The light shows and movies are fun as well, and reasonably priced.

What a wonderful museum. You will need several hours to cover it well. Do not miss the outdoor exhibits of TX history and wonderful display of how the lived.This museum is free to the public. We did not see the planetarium so I cannot comment. The museum has lots of really interesting exhibits. When we visited, several areas were roped off or closed, so we were done in about an hour and fifteen minutes.
