New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
Located within walking distance of Old Town,
the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
offers fascinating exhibits that take advantage of this
state's natural wealth.
New Mexico is dinosaur country and recent discoveries of fossilized
dinosaur skin and a dinosaur egg are on display.
Visitors can step back
in time in a one-of-a-kind "Evolator", walk through a simulated active
volcano and experience the Ice Age. Don't miss the Dynamax Theater,
a high-tech theater experience that puts you in the on-screen action.
The LodeStar Astronomy Center
, opened in January 2000, is another
exciting addition to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.

exhibit galleries and an astronomy themed retail shop.
The 20,000 square foot astronomy center is one of three Lodestar Astronomy Education Projects administered by the University
