AUSTIN, Texas —Have you ever wondered about a feather you’ve found or that quilt from your grandmother’s attic? Then bring it with you to Identification Day at the Texas Memorial Museum Saturday (July 15) from 1- 5 p.m. The general public is invited to bring artifacts, fossils, rocks and other natural objects to be identified by TMM expert scientists. The TMM is located at 2400 Trinity Street on The University of Texas at Austin campus.
Scientists and historians will be on hand to identify and provide free information about any object. Participating institutions include the Non-vertebrate and Vertebrate Paleontology Laboratories, Texas Natural History Collection and Cultural Collection of the TMM.
The Texas Memorial Museum maintains collections of more than 5 million objects, from firearms to fossils. Charted by the Texas State Legislature in 1935, and completed in 1939, TMM serves the public by preserving, studying and interpreting the natural and cultural heritage of Texas.
