Arrived at 3pm it was already closed. Took some pictures and saw some prairie dog. Certainly would have been better had it been open,

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.

I don't get it. THe Lubbock City Council won't help the 300,000 folks here with the fundamentals of a dog park, but erect a giant series of softball/baseball fields and from what I can figure, as many as 18 soccer fields in one complex next to the museum, but they sit empty. I have taken my dogs there in the... More

We live in Lubbock, but we have never been to Lubbock Lake. Spent about 1 1/2 hrs reading and touring. Very interesting. No charge but we left a donation. Archeological site dates back 15,000 or more years

I previously gave a rave review to LLL. I still love, love the place. But recent events and the way they were handled have led me to change my review. The museum is great. The kid's programs are fantastic! I cannot recommend the bigger trails for families with smaller kids. There is a no dog policy in place. I have... More

Went there on a whim, nice short and informational. Great hiking trails apparently. It's great to visit small museums like these and keep them going.

We had been wanting to visit the Lubbock Lake Landmark for many years and finally everything fell into place. The site is fascinating and the little museum is very well done. There's no entry fee so it's good for folks on a budget although donations are accepted. The trail system is well-maintained with interpretive stops placed at comfortable intervals. Our... More
