This place was just fascinating!!! Our tour guide was wonderful and explained everything. There are two types of dinosaur prints and two snail trails! I have done the Canyon Lake Gorge tour in the past, this was just as fulfilling and informative. I plan on taking our out of town visitors here from now on! We went on a Thursday... More

Interesting exhibits. I enjoyed the talks about dinosaurs. It's not a huge museum, but it's well organized and there are signs to explain everything.

It's a little museum but my family got a wonderful tour! She went over dinosaur history of our area before seeing the tracks. Then we went in and saw the rest of the museum which has wonderful artifacts from the area. Plan on spending about 45 minutes.

the staff is knowledgeable about the topic, they seem to love what they do, the museum could add more things, it seems limited.

The main attraction was the dinosaur tracks. The volunteer was very nice. Since we were the only people there at the time, we got a private tour with her. The cost was reasonable for maintaining the museum and preserve the tracks. Great place for the kids.

One day a developer was plowing out the side of a hill right on the main highway FM2673 and found many, many strange tracks. They were dinosaur tracks from many long years ago, even before the earth was here according to some. Now you can see these tracks for yourself. Recently metal shade structures were installed making summer on a... More

If you are close to this museum it is worth the trip. It is an amazing unveiling of 110 million year old dinosaur footprints in mass. I have never seen such a clear visual of history. Under a large steel pole-barn are at least 60 dinosaur footprints that reveal the path of these giants. Great field trip!! It is a... More

Enjoyed strolling outside and looking at the dino tracks. Its nice that they covered them for preservation. The structure was tastefully done and the entire outside area looks very professionally landscaped. Inside are 2 rooms with local history and prehistoric displays. Worth a stop.
