Bandera Natural History Museum

Various exciting items inside the museum include our icon “Twiga” (Swahili for giraffe) – a 17-foot Masai giraffe, a 2000-pound solid jade tiger, a life size triceratops dinosaur skeleton reproduction used in the movie “Night At The Museum”, the Trail of Habitats — six hand painted dioramas with over 100 animals along with corresponding flora and fauna used to inspire wonder about wildlife and their habits and habitats. In addition, there are many other exhibits. The museum also has 18 life size dinosaurs plus four play stations on its 8 acre grounds, a gift shop with items starting at minimal prices, plus the Twiga Café and Patio with vending machines for drinks and snacks.
