There will be a Texas Artifact Exhibit at the Naranjo Museum of Natural History in Lufkin. This will be a great chance to celebrate Texas History, and their new Texas Artifacts Exhibit. The exhibits opening event will feature artifact identification. Kind of like antique roadshow, without the dollar amounts.

They won't tell you what your things are worth, but they will be better equipped than anyone to tell you what they are. So their wont be appraisals, just identification. If you have a Texas artifact, and want to bring it, the event will be at the Naranjo Museum of Natural History at 5104 South First Street, Lufkin Texas 75901.

Your items will be identified by local experts Morris Weeks and Dr. Neal Naranjo. They are uniquely qualified to tell you what you have. Bring your fossils, Texas artifacts,  or other artifacts, any items to be identified really.
