I'm proud of Waco for preserving these relics and of President Obama for preserving this on July 2015 as a national monument. Very interesting finds!!

This is an amazing site/working museum in progress, and to think it is so close to home and not too far from I35. The docents actually work there and have a passion for preserving the past. They answer all your questions and have a lot of information to share. The display is first class with many skeletons in their original... More

Our guide Lincoln was very knowledgeable. The site is smaller than I expected but was very educational.

The little building where you purchase tickets is also very small and only 20 people fill it up. Another thing is that usually a National Monument will honor the Lifetime National... More

Seeing the bones of full mammoths in an air-conditioned setting makes this a must see in Waco. It is great for children of all ages. The tour lasts about 45 minutes and the fees are very reasonable. Certainly gives you a connected feeling to the centuries before us. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Invest the time...it's worth it.

The staff at the Waco Mammoth Site told me that attendance here has tripled since the July 10th announcement by President Obama that it is now a National Monument. It was very busy on the Saturday morning when I went and parking is an issue since the parking lot is very small. The staff is very friendly and the docents... More

Took the kids here so we can enjoy the best Waco has to offer. I was pleasantly surprised on how much there is to know about Mammoths. This is a must see.
