The Association promotes and supports the Museum and assists in securing monies, members, collections and general good will for the educational and building programs of the Museum.


The Museum of Texas Tech University Association (the Association) began 80 years ago when a group of visionary people came together to discuss the need to collect and preserve the art, culture and history of Lubbock and the region.   The Association is one of the oldest continuously functioning organizations in Lubbock and serves as a group of community volunteers offering unique and broad support of the Museum and staff. 

With current membership of over 400, the Association has assisted with various projects and programs that have enhanced, updated and expanded the collections, services, programs and construction of the Museum.  The Association is also active in the educational programming of the Museum by supporting (through volunteerism and finances) activities such as the Summer Youth Program, Saturdays at the Museum, Thursday Night at the Museum and the Moody Planetarium.
