My family enjoyed this a lot, but it is quite small and not much there. Educational. Did you know there were camels in TX once? Blew my kids minds -the tween and teens anyways.

Great place to visit! I didn't know that Colombian Mammoths were in Texas. Very informative and easy to find. There is an area set-up for kids with replicas of some of the fossils for the kids to handle.

My husband and I stopped at the Mammoth Museum it was very interesting. Not as big as I would like but still it was cool to see the land and the bones of the Mammoth.

This is a very interesting and unique kind of attraction. Rangers are great and very knowledgeable about the mammoths and the history of the site.

Awesome place to visit... Lots of good information... The guided tour is about 2 hours... Just take comfortable shoes, a good camera or phone and be ready to learn!

Stopped here really just because we had time but was pleasantly surprised it was very interesting information! They have only been part of the NPS for 2 yrs, will be very neat to come back in 3-5yrs when they can get some more funding together...More

We stopped by to see the mammoth fossils. It was a neat experience to see the fossils still in the ground the way they found them. Almost like seeing a dog in progress. Fun stop for us.
