for all to learn and grow
Located on the Baylor University campus, the Mayborn Museum Complex features a natural science and cultural history museum focusing on Central Texas, with walk-in dioramas including one on the Waco Mammoth Site, and exploration stations for geology, paleontology, archaeology, and natural history. In addition to the natural history exhibits, there are two floors of themed discovery rooms that encourage hands-on learning for all ages.
The Governor Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village was donated to Baylor University in 1985 by the Daniel Family. The structures were relocated from Liberty, Texas to Baylor’s campus in 1986, where they now reside along the banks of the Brazos River. Today, the nine wood-frame buildings that comprise the village, provide a glimpse into the past, bringing to life a community in the 1890s.
Engaging our community and inspiring life-long learning through our rich collections, vibrant programs, and hands-on experiences.
To serve our community with distinction by providing greater creative opportunities for all to learn and grow.
