The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History has served the Brazos Valley in many ways since its founding in 1961. There is no other museum within a 100 mile radius of Bryan and College Station which focuses on natural and cultural history and encourages human interaction with nature.

As the ONLY Natural History Museum in the Brazos Valley, the Museum elevates, motivates, and inspires visitors of all ages by showcasing the best of Earth in Nature, Science, and History. Located in the heart of Texas, the Museum promotes science and natural and cultural history education, while encouraging responsible stewardship of all natural and cultural resources. Serving all Texans, the Museum: (1) provides educational programming (exhibits, camps, classes, lectures, outreach, tours, & special events); (2) safeguards artifacts and natural specimens for future generations; and (3) forms cooperative partnerships with arts and cultural organizations, community oriented entities, and academic institutions throughout the Brazos Valley.


The Museum has a variety of long term exhibits including Dinosaurs, Ice Age Mammals, Stone Arrow and Spear points, Minerals, Taxidermy Animals, Texas & Local History, and Live Animals including an Observation Bee Hive.
