H-E-B Lantern/Valero Great Hall/Orientation Gallery
Your journey into Texas Deep Time starts when you walk into the New Witte.
A replica of a giant Quetzalcoatlus will greet you as you enter the H-E-B Lantern. Next, it’s on to the Valero Great Hall to explore the K.K. Amini and Walter and Gayle Embrey Texas Deep Time Walls to see the changing landscape of what is now Texas. Discover a geological narrative preserved in vertical layers of rock and soil: millions, thousands and hundreds of years ago. Here you will be immersed into the land that is now Texas, both through time and geology. Fly over the landscapes of Texas in the Gates Mineral Company Orientation Gallery and prepare for a fascinating visit through Texas Deep Time. Your path to discovery begins here!
