The first floor features Lipscomb Art Gallery and a great hands-on discovery area with lots of things to try out. The second level features the state's natural history and traveling exhibits. The third level focuses on science and technology while the fourth floor showcases the state's history.
Things to look forward to: the museum has just opened a new food service, The Crescent Café, to better serve our guests. Come enjoy sandwiches, soup, and our special fudge, more on site!
