Located on the Baylor University campus, the Mayborn Museum Complex features a natural science and cultural history museum focusing on Central Texas with walk-in dioramas including one on the Waco Mammoth Site, and exploration stations for geology, paleontology, archaeology, and natural history.
In addition to the natural history exhibits, there are seventeen themed Discovery Rooms occupy two floors of one wing of the museum complex. Providing visitors with hands-on activities, these rooms are designed to invigorate young imaginations and introduce them to the worlds of Vertebrates, Invertebrates, Communication, Health, Water and Bubbles, Energy, Optics, and Sound, among others. Parents as well as children will be thrilled to walk through a model of the human heart, to “communicate” in hieroglyphics, to play a tune on the walk-on piano, and to try their hand at reporting the TV news and weather.
Another highlight is the Historic Village. The nine wood frame buildings that comprise the village, provide a glimpse into the past, bringing to life a community in the 1890s.
The Governor Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village closes everyday at 4:00 pm. Come visit us at the Mayborn Museum Complex today!
