Took my Niece and Nephew to the site and was very impressed at the knowledge of the tour guide and the over all sight. Niece and Nephew were visiting from PA and just gushed over the site. Would highly recommend the site to all visitors especially those that are interested in history.

This was great. We went on a Saturday afternoon and took the guided tour. There were about 20 in the group. All ages, which I think made it difficult for the younger children to stay focus and the older ones to pay attention. Maybe if they had broken it up into 2 groups? None the less it was very educational.... More

This point of interest really does not take a long time to see. I would say anywhere from 30min to 1hr if you want to walk around the grounds to relax. Very interesting and the guides are full of facts and stories that we enjoyed. Glad that we finally went to see it. Look for the coupon in the visitor... More

My husband, brother-in-law and sister-in-law visited there on March 28. It was interesting to hear how they happened to find the bones. Jeremy was a great guide who told us how we might find fossils ourselves. I would recommend this place to everyone.

We were looking for an activity to split up a long road-trip day, and were so glad we stopped here. Not yet listed in the AAA book, we were lucky that the gentleman at the TX Welcome Center recommended this. Interesting for children AND adults, we learned a lot about the history of the place and the fascinating creatures that... More

My kiddos and I visited the Mammoth Site for the first time over Spring Break. The Mammoth site is located close to the Cameron Park, Zoo and other points of interest. There was plenty of free parking, and a quick walk to the main office/storefront. Admission was reasonable, especially with using a coupon found online. Walking tours are conducted every... More

We visited the site last weekend with our grandchildren. This place is really great as the building is actually built around the site where the dig occured and you can look down at the site from above to see the bones. The grandkids loved it and so did we. A very interesting stop in Waco. Sadly, the dig has stopped... More

If your in Waco please go here. This has got to be one of the coolest places we have been. The guides know what they are talking about & can answer any questions. Well one they can't is When is digging going to restart. Well that depends on us. They need money desperately. So visit & donate. Then tell your... More

Wow. Who knew. A real find in the middle of Texas. The site was discovered, dug, and now maintained by a Baylor University joint endeavor. All visitors get a guided tour, about an hour. Reasonably priced, $6 for seniors, $7 regular. Very impressed.
