For fifteen years, Baylor University's Mayborn Museum Complex has fostered opportunities for life-long learning in the community. The museum annually offers a range of events and exhibits that expose guests of all ages to new worlds. We strive to inspire and possibly lead others to ground-breaking careers in natural science and cultural history.
This Giving Day, we are asking for your support as we work to make the museum even better.
Reigniting Curiosity: Natural Science and Cultural History Gallery Renovations
Since 2004 when the Sue and Frank Mayborn Natural Science and Cultural History Museum Complex opened at Baylor University, our natural science and cultural history exhibits have been a paramount attraction at the museum. With a lead gift from a generous donor, the Mayborn is launching a four-phased, ten-year master plan for the renovation of our natural science and cultural history exhibits—the largest renovation in the Mayborn’s history.
The renovation will provide innovative upgrades to the natural science and cultural history spaces. New additions will include an Acrocanthosaurus that comes to life every ten minutes through a projection system and theatrical sound system, a replica of the Waco Suspension Bridge that walks guests through Central Texas’ history, and bronze mammoths at the entrance of the museum. The future has never been brighter for the Mayborn Museum. Make a gift today to support renovations at the Mayborn Museum.
The Mayborn Museum hosts traveling exhibits on a variety of topics two to three times per year. These exhibits are valuable to museum members who are frequent visitors as well as bringing community and regional attention to the Mayborn. The museum has hosted exhibits that are nationally recognized and maybe one or one of a few stops in Texas. Past exhibits include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer, Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition, Very Eric Carle, and The Wizard of Oz Educational Exhibit. The Museum is seeking endowment support to provide sustained, enduring funding to secure such noteworthy exhibits from year to year.
