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!

If your not interested in this kind of thing then you wont like it. Very little to touch and nothing you can actually handle. It's all viewing and information from a guided tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and d tons of information. we found it quite interesting and well worth our time.

Our tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgable! He was very patient answering the kids questions and making them excited about the mammoths.
