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.
