The Texas Museum of Science & Technology (TXMOST) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to elevating interest, understanding and participation in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for the Central Texas community; developing and implementing educational outreach programs and resources; and creating Austin’s first science museum, planetarium and technology center. For almost 13 years, TXMOST was known as the Austin Planetarium, traveling around the central Texas area with a mobile planetarium doing shows, events, and outreach programs. In March 2015, they set up an interim facility in Cedar Park and opened the doors with their first exhibit Body Worlds. They have since hosted Space City and Nikon Small World, and are currently hosting the TimeWalk exhibition. For more information, visit www.txmost.org.
The Texas Museum of Science & Technology currently has two exhibit spaces as well as our planetarium. Superbly reproduced, the magnificent Tutankhamun collection of legendary artifacts faithfully preserves the grandeur and mystery of the most astonishing archaeological treasure ever discovered. Guests can also explore our permanent Timewalk exhibition, journeying from the deep past of the Precambrian Era, through the Jurassic, into the Holocene Period—meeting some extraordinary individuals along the way.
We opened our doors on March 20th, 2015 with our first exhibit BODY WORLDS. For almost 13 years we were known as the Austin Planetarium. We traveled around the central Texas area with our mobile planetarium doing shows, events, and outreach programs. In March 2015, we set up in an interim facility in Cedar Park. We are still very young, and still have a lot to do. But everybody on staff is incredible and very dedicated to the museum. We all believe that a strong appreciation and education of science makes for a better society. So we are doing our part to bring informal science to the community and culture of central Texas.
