This was a nice little museum, but only took about 30 minutes to see with a 6 year old. He enjoyed the dinosaur tracks and the "dig" set up that allowed him to find dinosaur "bones". It only cost $3 to get in, so I feel it was a nice diversion and kind of educational. Just don't plan on staying... More

Dinosaur tracks! It was a very reasonable entrance fee of $4 a person to see these great marks. The employee was very formative about the tracks and have a quick overview of the history, which was about 5 minutes and then we were on our own to explore the tracks by ourselves. We really enjoyed this place and suggest seeing... More

This was an interesting place and our grandkids (ages 9-12) were very interested in all the aspects of this small museum and the activities. There were a lot of "old timey" items that they learned the history of while there..

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

It may be a small museum, but it was quite informative and interesting. The staff really knew their stuff and could answer any of your questions. The dinosaur tracks were quite interesting. The museum also had native American artifacts, and a history of the Canyon Lake Dam. There were outdoor displays of historical farming and tools. There was a small... 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.
