This working archaeological site is a great lesson in the pre-history of the high plains. Walking trail leads around the site of ancient human and animal activity and the interpretive center tells the story with words, dioramas and video. We’ll bring the grandkids with us...More

Been here several times. History ranges from prehistoric to more recent history of Plains Indians. It is an active archaeological dig so you can see them working if you go at the right time.

Lubbock was a prehistoric watering hole of now-extinct giant Bison Antiqus and Mastadons, and the amazing Short-Faced Bear . The archaeology here is fascinating.

This is a natural history preserve. The interpretive center was interesting and hands on. It had 3D objects created so visitors could see and feel the objects they were learning about. The center was very interesting and took visitors back about 12,000 years in history....More

Knowing the story of archeological finds here, it was interesting to finally get to stop at the actual location. It's just very funny to see a big statue of an elephant in Lubbock. Nice display.
