“Oldest continuously occupied location in North America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is the place to see human history come alive. It is a still actively worked archeological site with a a good museum showing the finds from the dig. They also have lots of weekend, Spring Break and Summer activities and camps for children.

“Great walking trails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

It's fun to look for wildlife on the trails, the Mammoth statues are awesome. Don't go when it's HOT!

We went on a school field trip. The kids did not appreciate it as much, but I loved it.

“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Really enjoy this small archealogical museum. It's hard to believe there's over 10,00 yrs of human history in Lubbock! Would be nice to get a little closer to dig site, but it is free and indoor exhivits are nice. Always too hot to do the trails when Ive been there. The nearby prairie dog town is pretty cool.
