The Houston Museum of Natural Science and the Museum of Fine Arts, in Houston; the Dallas Museum of Natural History, the Dallas Museum of Art, and Science Place in Dallas; and the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth are only some of the many museums in these cities. Valuable art collections have been acquired by the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, the San Antonio Museum of Art and the Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, the Elisabet Ney Museum in Austin, and the El Paso Museum of Art. Of historical interest are the Texas State History Museum in Austin, the Texas Memorial Museum of the University of Texas at Austin, the Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum at Canyon, and the Witte Museum in San Antonio. The Museo Alameda, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, in San Antonio celebrates Hispanic contributions to American culture.
Interest in music and drama is a vital part of Texas’s cultural tradition, and the state has contributed significantly to national achievements in these fields. Most sizable cities and most colleges and universities have local concert series and theaters. The most prominent locally supported orchestras are the Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio symphony orchestras. The Dallas Opera and Houston Grand Opera provide opera seasons. The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts houses the Dallas Theatre Center, the Dallas Opera, and several dance groups. Other active theater groups are in Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.
