Not very many exhibits, but what they had was nice. Would have enjoyed the live animal exhibit more if there were not campers in there, too. They offer a day camp for children, so we felt uncomfortable going in the live animal exhibit area while...More

I love bringing my kids here on Dollar Day. My kids are young, so I don't think it's worth the regular cost to bring them, but for $1 apiece (and the youngest is free!), it's a gold mine! They briefly browse the museum exhibits, but...More

Museum does very good special exhibits. But, the rest of the museum seems crowded, a bit musty, not very well thought out or displayed. Needs a total redo. Not a place to spend a lot of time at or go back to. Very disappointing.

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is a small museum, but is great for kids who want to learn. My granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed it and the exhibits are indeed educational. A great place to spend a couple of hours with your kids.

This is fairly average for a Texas County Museum. Adjust your expectations, this is not a huge museum in a large metropolitan area, it will be small and quaint. The Tarzan exhibit was such a fun and odd find, but completely worth browsing. Some really...More

This museum is small but definitely worth it. I took my little brother in the Spring and they had a "temporary photography exhibit" and it was fabulous! The permanent exhibits were excellent as well. I wish more towns had these small museums. It is awesome...More

Very small place. Limited permanent exhibits. Third rate. Some traveling exhibits. Costly for what you get.
