Tuesday, October 28, 2014
4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
William Stamps Farish Hall of Texas Wildlife
With over 350 specimens representing over 250 species, the new William Stamps Farish Hall of Texas Wildlife showcases the remarkably diverse biomes of our beloved Lone Star State. Emphasis is placed on rare, endangered, and extinct species. One of the most important services a museum provides to its patrons is serving a monument of history. For this reason, the dioramas emphasize what our state's wildlife looked like prior to extensive human colonization.
Get to know sharks in a new interactive, informative live touch tank experience. See what it's like to get up close and personal with sharks at the live shark touch tank, track great white sharks swimming in the Gulf of Mexico in real time, and see what's happening with sharks all over the world through amazing conservation efforts led by top marine biologists. Sharks are not always given the credit they deserve, but that will all change when you experience Shark!
