  • I was in Waco to see the Fixer Upper stuff, but as a science teacher I couldn't pass up this cool site. It was only $4 for me with my teacher ID ($5 regular adult entry). We spent an hour with a late ...  more »
  • It's new and well done. The main exhibit is spectacular 15 mammoths and other animals trapped by flood of mud. Worth a visit for history and animal Buffs  more »

  • A National Park just an hour+ from the Dallas Fort Worth area. Most north central Texans don't even know about this place yet. It's very cool! They found the remains of 19 Columbian Mammoths. Go check it out.
  • We had a lot of fun at this a place. We home school so we were able to learn about all kinds to f stuff. It's so cool to walk around these grounds and know that these were walking around the same places as us a long time ago.
  • What a great treasure for Waco! Our guide Dava was a wealth of knowledge and had a passion for these awesome pachyderms. The dig and bones as they lay tell such an neat story of life back in Ice Age. We will definitely be back with the rest of the family.
  • Very cool and ranger answered every question or found answers when she wasn't sure (only two she wasn't sure out of the hundreds asked). Amazing preservation and explanations.
  • Educational and unique. The guides are very informative and knowledgeable. It's a good family experience and great for older kids but small ones get bored after the first few minutes. They like the bones but the educational information is too advanced for children over 8. The gift shop has lots of fun stuff for the younger ones though. It's a great event for adults too!
