The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is teeming with life and adventure this summer with Indiana JonesTM and the Adventure of Archaeology! This exhibit, which is set to be on display through August 10, explores the world of the Indiana Jones films with assorted props, costumes, and clips from the movies as well as artifacts from around the world. This exhibit will take you to the farthest reaches of our planet and into long forgotten civilizations. Soon enough, you’ll want to join Indy on his next expedition! Indiana Jones TM and the Adventure of Archaeology transforms the museum experience into a multimedia interactive adventure. Upon entering the exhibit, visitors will be immersed in the world of Indiana Jones, in an exhibit environment created by state-

of-the-art technology and spanning over 10,000 square feet. Equipped with a personal video companion, visitors will embark on a quest to uncover the true origins of archaeological mysteries. An original audio greeting recorded by Harrison Ford – the world-renowned actor who brought Indy to life – welcomes visitors and invites them to begin their journey into the science of field archaeology. Charged with comprehensive educational content, photos, and videos, the interactive hand-held device guides visitors along the “Indy Trail” and through various archaeological zones. Visitors also have the ability to create their own adventure with an interactive quest. Indiana JonesTM and the Adventure of Archaeology not only features a vast collection of Indy props, models,

concept art and costumes, it also presents a wealth of historical and cultural facts and objects. The internationally renowned University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, otherwise known as the Penn Museum, provides a remarkable array of archaeological artifacts and educational material. National Geographic, the exhibition’s global presenting partner, also shares photos, videos and content from its historic archives. Since 1954 the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History has been a Cultural District staple that can be found near the Will Rogers Memorial Center and the National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame. Anchored by its rich collections, FWMSH is an institution dedicated to lifelong learning engaging children and adult guests through creative, vibrant programs and exhibits interpreting science and the history of Texas and the Southwest. Since its building renovation in 2009, the permanent exhibits feature DinoLabs, Energy Blast, The Cattle Raisers Museum, The Fort Worth Children’s Museum, and the 9/11 Tribute Exhibit. DinoLabs is a 3,700-squarefoot-gallery where you can experience the immensity of the State Dinosaur of Texas for the very first time. Energy Blast immerses you into the world of regional energy and alternative energy resources, and highlights the innovative pioneers who continue to make energy a leading industry in the region-all through interactive exhibits, multimedia, dioramas, learning stations, and a 4D Theater. The Cattle Raisers Museum is a 10,000-square-foot exhibition dedicated to preserving and celebrating the vital history

of the cattle industry. The Fort Worth Children’s Museum gallery targets the Museum’s youngest guests – ages new born to 8 – and their caregivers. The purpose is to encourage opportunities for children to play since, of course, it is another way they learn. The 9/11 Tribute Exhibit displays the World Trade Center’s largest artifact: beam N-101 from the World Trade Center’s North Tower. The Omni Theater, which can be found within the Museum as well, was the first IMAX screen in the Southwest and remains the largest IMAX dome in the United States west of the Mississippi River. The Omni’s 120-foot-wide screen places the audience in the center of the action, producing a sensation much closer to real-life than a conventional movie theater. The theater embodies a revolutionary concept in film presentation, which combines the drama of oversized film, state-of-the-art projection equipment, and

West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

A

by Michael H. Price

As long as we’re “out where the West begins,” as an iconic figure in Fort Worth’s history described this Cowtown, then we might as well look even further westward within the city itself. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter may have intended to give Dallas the razz when he coined that phrase — but the West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavy-duty commercial, artistic and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st century, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West Seventh Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brick-paved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and special-interest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an everexpanding array of art galleries, stage-andscreen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly 6

museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History, commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street and just northward are additional cultural touchstones: An expanded and redesigned Amon Carter Museum of American Art, houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture, from essential historic works by Charles M. Russell and Frederick Remington to a new acquisition of last-century Native American photography by Edward S. Curtis. Close by is the Kimbell Art Museum, itself preparing for an expansion and still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America.” The neighboring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a work-of-art 2002 building designed by world-renowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independent-studio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texas-bred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oil-and-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and a new digital Noble Planetarium. The Omni Theater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and boasts a new digital sound

system and enhanced lighting.The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FMS&H. The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from those who have lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening menu within one of the most beautiful modern buildings in America. The Modern Art Museum’s 250-seat Café Modern, with an outdoor terrace, overlooks a serene reflecting pond. The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. The Great Outdoors offers breakfast subs, lunch and dinner subs, soups, salads and all natural ice cream. Off University on White Settlement Road, a Texas barbecue tradition reigns at Angelo’s, offering a half-century of first-class BBQ and ultra-chilled beer. The Fort Worth Community Art Center, at the district’s western edge, showcases work by the city’s homegrown community of artists, in addition to live-theater venues. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still the most imposing site within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Shoppers can find a broad selection of merchandise in the Cultural District’s 8

specialty shops. European antiques and upholstery can be found at Domain XCIV and the dh collection boasts progressive furniture designs in an appetite-whetting environment. Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens. The European-designed Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses,and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!

Glen Rose CVB Glen Rose, The Dinosaur Capital of Texas

Glen Rose provides the perfect destination for families, or people just wanting a taste of small town Texas. Glen Rose is best known as the “Dinosaur Capital of Texas,” but is much more than that. Glen Rose has been a popular tourist destination since the early 1900s. In addition to the beautiful scenery, rolling hills and rivers, the Glen Rose area has hundreds of natural springs. The water flowing from the springs is heavily laden with minerals and it was believed at one time to have healing powers. Glen Rose is still a popular tourist destination with its rolling hills and rivers, but several family attractions have been added over the years including Dinosaur Valley State Park, Dinosaur World and Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, just to name a few. Also, be sure and visit the Historic Courthouse Square. Home to quaint shops, restaurants and lodging, it provides a nostalgic feel, that few towns can still claim. As for those hills and rivers that first put Glen Rose on the map, they are still there. In addition to the natural beauty, visitors will find opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, wildlife viewing, kayaking, canoeing or just kicking back and enjoying a sunset. Glen Rose also offers a number of overnight opportunities ranging from upscale lodges to a variety of bed and breakfasts, cabins, cottages, campgrounds, hotels, and RV parks. For more information about Glen Rose attractions and lodging, contact the Glen Rose Visitor Information Center at 1-888-346-6282 or visit www.glenrosetexas.net.
