Mayborn Museum Complex

Engage. Explore. Enjoy.

The Sue & Frank Mayborn Natural Science and Cultural History Museum Complex at Baylor University includes the Harry & Anna Jeanes Discovery Center, the Gov. Bill & Vara Daniel Historic Village and the Strecker Museum Collection. The Mayborn Museum Complex brings together in one location the resources of hands-on discovery rooms and interactive natural science and cultural history galleries, including outdoor exhibits. This unusually rich combination provides a wide spectrum of engaging learning opportunities for all types of learners and visitors of all ages. The permanent exhibits and education programs encourage families to learn together as they make choices and design their own museum experience. The museum has also hosted a wide variety of popular traveling exhibits in the Thomas E. and Emilyne Weed Anding Traveling Exhibition Gallery such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer and SPEED: Science of Motion. Through early January, museum guests can experience life aboard one of the world’s most infamous maritime vessels in Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. The fun continues in the lively and colorful Mayborn Museum Store, which you will want to include as part of your visit. The 2,000-square-foot store is stocked with toys and games, novelty items, gems and minerals, jewelry and tons of books that reflect the diversity of experiences available at the museum. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. It is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Museum memberships allow patrons unlimited free admission and a member-only hour on most Saturday mornings.
