Wow! A must see. This phenomenal site is really cool. One of the newest National Parks and the dig site is a site to see! We had a new young ranger as a tour guide, but she was really enthusiastic and well informed. Will definitely visit again!!

This site stands out for education of archaeology for both children and adults. We are told the story of what is known from the remains of bones. During a flash flood thousands of years ago, some wild animals were trapped in the mud with their bones remaining. The tour guides tell a story that fascinated me (and you need to... More

My granddaughter was excited to see the Mammoth National Monument! We went on a weekday first thing after opening so there was not a large crowd. My granddaughter was given a junior ranger book to fill out as the tour began. The Ranger asked her questions to keep her engaged and she was able to "interview" him about his job... More

I almost skipped this when I heard you had to take a tour to really appreciate it. I'm not a huge fan of guided tours. I'm so glad that I didn't though! Our tour guide was amazing. She was from Waco and now is a scientist and guide. She was clearly passionate about her work and her enthusiasm was contagious.... More

Daughter asked to come here so she could learn about the mammoths. Since its on our way home, why not. She loves learning, so we got her the Junior Ranger book, and took the tour. Facilities are small, but staff was helpful and informative. We enjoyed out visit.

This is a must see if you're in the Waco area. We have a five year old and a two year old and both enjoyed the visit. The admission was very reasonable and our tour-guide, Kristen was wonderful, extremely knowledgeable, and held everyone's interest. We wished that the tour could have lasted longer as her stories were so interesting. The... More
