Fodor's Expert Review Mayborn Museum
Sixteen themed discovery rooms encourage hands-on learning for visitors of all ages. Rooms are devoted to vertebrates and invertebrates, communication, health, American Indians, optics and sound, water and bubbles, energy, simple machines, and other subjects.
The Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village, a 15-building complex adjacent to the Mayborn, gives visitors a view of Texas life from the early 20th century.
