Get the kids out of the house this summer and investigate this really fun little place at Canyon Lake. You can see everything in 30-45 minutes and it's not "lame" like my pre-teens anticipated. If you live in San Antonio or the Hill Country you will see tracks and fossils, and hear explanations that will have you slowing down and... More

Just stopped by for the fun of it! My husband is a history fan and enjoyed it! A retired couple was our tour guides. It was exciting to see the Dino tracks, this would be a great place for kids who like dinosaurs to visit. Great price $4 for adult and $3 for kids free if under 5years old.

This was an extra stop along the way from the marina and spending time on the lake. It was interesting to see what uncovered the prints and the story behind it. We did not spend much time there but saw what we wanted to see and during the week it was not crowded at all.

Went when the kids and grandkids were here. Much info and history about the area and dam in the office. The grandkids like the dino tracks but the highlight was getting to dig in the sand pit and find hidden fossils.

This was a nice little museum, but only took about 30 minutes to see with a 6 year old. He enjoyed the dinosaur tracks and the "dig" set up that allowed him to find dinosaur "bones". It only cost $3 to get in, so I feel it was a nice diversion and kind of educational. Just don't plan on staying... More

Dinosaur tracks! It was a very reasonable entrance fee of $4 a person to see these great marks. The employee was very formative about the tracks and have a quick overview of the history, which was about 5 minutes and then we were on our own to explore the tracks by ourselves. We really enjoyed this place and suggest seeing... More

This was an interesting place and our grandkids (ages 9-12) were very interested in all the aspects of this small museum and the activities. There were a lot of "old timey" items that they learned the history of while there..

This is a very good small museum, especially pertaining to the dinosaur footprints. Our only wish was that they had a bigger building to house the exhibits about pioneer times in the area, native Americans, and the building of the Canyon Lake dam. If those areas were presented in a more professional expanded manner, in a larger facility, this could... More

It may be a small museum, but it was quite informative and interesting. The staff really knew their stuff and could answer any of your questions. The dinosaur tracks were quite interesting. The museum also had native American artifacts, and a history of the Canyon Lake Dam. There were outdoor displays of historical farming and tools. There was a small... More

This museum is not large but has some interesting displays and we very much enjoyed our visit. The dinosaur tracks were neat. A nice little Hill Country treat.
