  • Awesome look into living and dying of the Great Mammoth.. Super educational for kids and adults... So glad this has become a National Monument 
  • Interesting place and great experience. Our tour guide was amazing. She explained things thoroughly and kept everyone (especially the kids) engaged by asking questions. The fossils have been preserved well, the walk to their location was short, and the area was air conditioned. The gift shop is quite small but they are looking into expanding it.
  • I enjoyed the petting zoo. The little baby mammoths were very friendly, and because I decided to go at 3am, it wasn't crowded at all (bring a flashlight if you go when it's dark). Also, I don't think my meds are working.
  • Excellent little visitors center/gift shop. Melissa was an excellent tour guide, and despite the sites relatively short history, she was very knowledgeable about the relative natural history of the area. Very cool place for children/young family's, not to mention those interested in natural history and archeology.
  • Very fascinating and informative. The guided tour is about 45 minutes. They have great plans for expansion so we will definitely have to make our way back.
  • What a jewel! Small but rich! Entrance to the park is free, goid parking, and excellent NPS guides!
