Arts & Museums
The items in the permanent collection of the Tandy Archaeological Museum, located on the campus of the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, date from about 1,500 B.C. to the Seventh Century A.D. The collection consists of ancient Middle Eastern artifacts uncovered during archaeological digs at Biblical sites in the Holy Land.
The largest Protestant institution of its kind, this school began as an offshoot of the Baylor Theology department and became a separate entity in 1907. In 1910, the school moved from Waco to its present location in Southwest Fort Worth. Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary offers bachelor and master's degrees in three disciplines: theology, educational ministry and church music. There are currently 20,000 students enrolled. The A. Webb Roberts Library houses the Tandy Archeological Museum, a small collection of biblical artifacts open to the public. Here you'll find maps, pottery and tools from the biblical town of Timnah, where Samson is said to have lived.
If you're interested in touching a part of Mars or looking at meteorite, then this is the place to visit. Learn how to identify a meteorite, get hands-on with different types of meteorites, or create your own terrestrial impact crater. The collection was donated to the Texas Christian University (TCU) over a period of eight years, from 1978 to 1986. It now contains over a thousand different meteorites. The gallery is open to new finds and if you think you have found a meteorite, come on over and they'll let you know whether or not its what you think it is!

A must visit while in Glen Rose, Barnards Mill and Art Museum is a structure steeped in interesting history. The museum started out as a water-powered grist mill and tried on many avatars including that of a health club and a clinic before becoming a museum. Furnished with beautiful antiques from the late 17th Century to the late 18th Century, the museum currently houses an extensive collection of artwork from the Fielder Foundation, as well as that from the personal collection of Richard Moore, who bought the property in 1979. The museum is only open on weekends.
Located in a very woodsy section of Trinity Park, this 19th-century grouping of log cabins is a true delight. The seven fully restored cabins originated in the 1850s. Volunteers who run the operation are adept at giving demonstrations of everyday activities from days gone by including corn grinding, candle dipping, spinning and weaving. Special programs such as pioneer pastimes are often held, showing children how people lived in pioneer times with examples of art, crafts and other displays. Check the website for admission prices and more.
