“Time with the Dinosaurs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Excellent example of Texas Hill Country dinosaur tracks. Easy location to find. Covered area where dinosaur tracks are located. Srmall museum with early pioneer artifacts. Informative docent led our tour. Wonderful story of how the tracks were discovered! Students in my group LOVED seeing all the tracks.

“Dinosaur Tracks in the rocks with shade - otherwise lame”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

One day a developer was plowing out the side of a hill right on the main highway FM2673 and found many, many strange tracks. They were dinosaur tracks from many long years ago, even before the earth was here according to some. Now you can see these tracks for yourself. Recently metal shade structures were installed making summer on a rocky hillside a little easier to take. An old building has almost high school quality displays discussing the evolution (maybe a bad word?) of the area which was once a sea.

“Unveiled History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

If you are close to this museum it is worth the trip. It is an amazing unveiling of 110 million year old dinosaur footprints in mass. I have never seen such a clear visual of history. Under a large steel pole-barn are at least 60 dinosaur footprints that reveal the path of these giants. Great field trip!! It is a short trip, might take only an hour to visit, but worth it for sure!

“Nice place to stroll.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Enjoyed strolling outside and looking at the dino tracks. Its nice that they covered them for preservation. The structure was tastefully done and the entire outside area looks very professionally landscaped. Inside are 2 rooms with local history and prehistoric displays. Worth a stop.
