Gallery Review - Monnig Meteorite Gallery

"Wait", you say, "What does a meteorite gallery have to do with promoting the Arts?"

Blame it on the science geek in me, but after discovering this gem of a gallery at TCU I had to expand the mission of this site to promote the Sciences available to the public in and around the 817 area code as well. I have added the Monnig Meteorite Gallery to the "Galleries, Studios & Exhibitions" tab. I have set up a separate heading for science galleries on this page and will do the same to the "Museums" tab as I receive submissions.

As for this meteorite gallery, I definitely recommend it. The specimens are beautifully displayed. I was informed by the curator that the designer of this gallery had also worked at the Smithsonian. The design does a great job of creatively using the limited space in such a way that you never feel cramped but rather feel that the gallery is much more expansive than it is. Easy to read informative text accompanies the specimens and photographs. There are also interactive exhibits and a small video viewing area. You can easily spend an hour perusing this delightful collection of displays and exhibits.

Plan your visit to the Monnig Meteorite Gallery Monday through Friday from 1 pm - 4 pm or Saturday from 9 am - 4 pm except on University holidays. Admission is free.
