Caesar Kleberg Hall of Natural History


The World Outside Brought Inside and So Much More...

The Caesar Kleberg Hall of Natural History reflects the unique South Texas environment through life-like animal mounts displayed in their natural habitats. Explore the ecosystems of South Texas and Northern Mexico, the Tamaulipan Biotic Province, through the museum's presentations of the area's plant and animal life. Green jays, javelinas, rattlesnakes and other interesting species are exhibited. The museum's touch-and-feel area provides a stimulating way to connect with the area's diverse wildlife. From the mesquite mixed-brush prairies through the oak motte forests and the arid chaparral, this is a region where the character of its people is shaped by the rugged natural environment. The gallery's namesake, pioneer naturalist Caesar Kleberg, endowed the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Foundation which sponsors this gallery.
