This is a very good small museum, especially pertaining to the dinosaur footprints. Our only wish was that they had a bigger building to house the exhibits about pioneer times in the area, native Americans, and the building of the Canyon Lake dam. If those areas were presented in a more professional expanded manner, in a larger facility, this could... More

This museum is not large but has some interesting displays and we very much enjoyed our visit. The dinosaur tracks were neat. A nice little Hill Country treat.

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.

Excellent example of Texas Hill Country dinosaur tracks. Easy location to find. Covered area where dinosaur tracks are located. Srmall museum with early pioneer artifacts. Informative docent led our tour. Wonderful story of how the tracks were discovered! Students in my group LOVED seeing all the tracks.
