Upcoming Special Events

Now Showing: Extreme Weather

Mayborn Museum Complex 

Select Showings Available March 4 – May 31, 2017

Weather is one of the most dynamic forces shaping our planet, but now it's more extreme and complex than ever. Extreme Weather takes us to the frontlines where few have gone.

Travel to the edge of 300-foot tall glaciers collapsing, to the front lines of massive wildfires, directly in the path of deadly, yet mesmerizing tornadoes. Follow researchers and everyday heroes as they uncover surprising connections to help us understand and adapt to our ever- changing weather.  

Admission to Extreme Weather is $3 for children, adults, and groups, $2 for Baylor University students and museum members.

Scheduled Screenings:

•             Saturdays - 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, & 3:00 pm
