  • Imagine your ranch with cattle, a river, a farmhouse, and more, then place your property on the Museum's big map of Texas.
  • Make your own theater and shadow puppets to bring your favorite stories to life.
  • Digging a well, building a skyscraper, hanging a picture, or finding your way by the stars? You are going to need a plumbline! Make and decorate your own custom plumbline.
