Texas Museum of Science and Technology
In 2015, the Austin Planetarium was expanded and reborn as the Texas Museum of Science and Technology, or TXMOST. The institution uses its sophisticated exhibitions and a growing docket of exhibits in partnership with the Exploratorium in San Francisco in an attempt to help improve the public's understanding, knowledge, and appreciation of science and technology. The Cedar Park-based facility offers 50-minute planetarium shows in a state-of-the-art 10-meter dome, one of the only ones of its kind in the Austin area. In partnership with the Exploratorium in San Francisco, the museum will feature 30 interactive hands-on exhibits that blend modern science and natural marvels that will help visitors better understand our world.
The museum is also in the process of adding the brand-new Genesis Exhibit, a permanent feature designed to tell the story of life from the earliest-known fossils all the way up to modern man. Eventually, the exhibit will feature more than 200 casts and fossils ranging from full-sized dinosaurs and saber-toothed cat skeleton to eggs and plants, displayed in a 12,000 square foot space, highlights include "Lucy," a juvenile tyrannosaurus rex fossil and the full head of its more formidable adult brethren.
