Did not visit site because of young grandchildren and inclimate weather, but Mayborn Museum has an excellent area for this... walking on a glass floor to view fossils below.

This ia a place that you need to visit if you are are in Waco Texas. They charge $7 per person for a tour. The tour guide was a very nice person, knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. I definitely recommend the visit, they have tours every 15 min.

Who knew camels went from North America to other continents? Or that wooly mammoths were significantly smaller than Texas mammoths? Wonderful tour and staff.

We spent a couple of hours at the Waco Mammoth site. We had a guided tour which starts at the gift shop. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and gave us time to look around on our own at the end of the guided tour.

Jeremy our guide gave us a very good tour with just the right amount of details. The short film was worth watching although more geared towards children. Good gift shop with very reasonably priced fossils!

If you like archaeology, fossils, dinosaurs, etc, or even if you just want to re-imagine Waco, then I think you'll enjoy this site. $13 admission. You take a short walking tour (30-45 min) from the visitor center, to the dig site, stopping a couple places along the way as the guide paints a picture of what the area might have... More

Really an interesting visit. The tour was very informative. The fact that the digs were preserved as excavated was awesome!
