This 142,000-square-foot facility on the Baylor campus is a wonderful learning experience for children as well as adults. It features a natural 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. Themed discovery rooms offer hands-on learning.
The complex includes the 13-acre Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village, which provides a glimpse into pioneer living in Central Texas.
A traveling exhibit, "Imaginate," which has interactive activities such as creating paper airplanes and testing them in a wind tunnel, is at the museum through Sept. 5.
The museum is free to visitors on the first Sunday afternoon of each month.
