This museum is about looking and understanding - looking up to the stars, looking out to the desert, and looking down to see ancient fossils. There are three primary permanent exhibits:

  • Desert Life
  • Light and Space
  • Permian Trackways

All of the permanent exhibit text and labels are presented in both English and Spanish.




Parking is at 500 N Water Street on the north end of Main Street Downtown, next to the Museum of Art.
