Architecture Tours

Experience our building as an exhibit in itself! Find out the design-centered reasons why the escalator only goes up, how the building was made to “float” with custom-designed structural support, and learn how the wildlife on the plinth is a landscaped tour across Texas — and through time — that helps make the Museum eco-friendly. This is a guided walking tour and will last 1 to 1.5 hours. Please inform the tour guide if any accommodations are required. This tour is not recommended for children under 10 years old.
