Natural History Museum complete with
dinosaur bones on UT campus. Here you will find a flying Pteranodon (like a Pteradactyl) skeleton and the crown jewel of the collection, a 30 foot long Mosasaur skeleton, found right here in Austin’s Onion Creek.
Located on the UT campus, this museum gives credit to some of Austin's first settlers.. In Short Even with four floors to occupy your time, this museum is on the small side. Still, you can see your share of dinosaur skeletons and footprints lifted from dry lakebeds in Texas. There are also rare American Indian artifacts as well as gems, meteorites and fossilized fish. The museum is overrun with school field trips on the weekdays and families looking for a little education on the weekends.
