Discovery Center Mayborn Museum Complex
2011 Reflections

The Mayborn Museum had a great 2011 thanks to all of our members, guests, volunteers and sponsors. Let’s take a moment to review the fun we’ve had this year. We traveled to Egypt, tried our hands at archaeology, and took explosive chemistry and brilliant biology lessons from some Baylor Bears before stepping off the bus for Christmas on 5th and climbing Aboard the Mayborn Express. Thank you for spending the year with us!

Wait! There’s More...

There is still plenty to experience in 2011. Bring your family to our place this holiday season.

Our favorite conductors are still running trains in the Anding Traveling Exhibits Gallery. All Aboard the Mayborn Express continues through December 31, 2011.

This will be your last opportunity to view one of our most entertaining and exciting exhibits of the year. Don’t Miss The Train!

Special thanks to the members of the Central Texas Area Model Railroaders who make this exhibit possible. We sincerely appreciate their generosity of time and talent.


The Mayborn Museum is a great place to make holiday memories. Several photo opportunities await you in our beautifully decorated museum including this whimsical setting of Santa’s Elves featuring the faces of museum guests.

We will be closed on New Year’s Day.

We appreciate your continued dedication to the Mayborn Museum. We look forward to 2012 and more exciting opportunities to engage, enjoy, and explore. Happy New Year!!
