CEDAR PARK - Nonprofit Texas Museum of Science & Technology (TXMOST) has opened its doors at a 30,000-sf temporary location at 1220 Toro Grande Dr.

TXMOST, formally known as Austin Planetarium, was recently rebranded, and TXMOST Executive Director Torvald Hessel said the new name and the interim Cedar Park location fit with the group’s mission to introduce more Texas residents to science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.

The museum will debut with the traveling exhibit “Body Worlds,” which displays donors’ human bodies that have been preserved through a process called plastination.

By the end of 2015, TXMOST will add a planetarium to the facility, according to Hessel.

TXMOST still plans to build a permanent museum somewhere in Central Texas. Hessel said Cedar Park as well as Austin are among the cities being considered for the permanent facility.
