TEXAS MEMORIAL MUSEUM

The Texas Memorial Museum is the exhibit hall of the Texas Natural Science Center, located at 2400 Trinity Street, on The University of Texas at Austin campus, in Austin, Texas. http://www.utexas.edu/tmm/exhibits/geology.html

I got to hear about this museum through the following reference:

Molineux, A. and Gunter, M. 2003. IMPACT: Texas and the World. An Interactive CDROM for Educational Outreach. Lunar and Planetary Science. 34: Abstract #2061. (Reference to Barnes, V. E. tektite collection). * Full article available free at http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2003LPI....34.2061M

Basically, the late Virgil Barnes donated his tektite collection to this museum - that makes it well worth a visit!

Has anyone been to this museum? Are the tektites on display? Do you have a photo I can use? Contact me at aubrey@tektites.co.uk Thanks!
