The dinosaurs that walked along algae-covered mud flats left deep footprints. Those tracks were subsequently filled in and covered by sediments, thousands of feet thick. Mineral-rich water seeping into the mud, along with heat and pressure of the overburden gradually turned them to stone. See model dinosaurs and hundreds of real tracks!
Native American Indian Exhibits Discover what the Native Americans ("Indians") left behind for our present day museum visitors to see, as those ancients migrated through our area from thousands of years ago up through the 1800's!
Antique & Vintage Showcase
Our one-of-a-kind antique and vintage museum collection will take you on a journey from the 1800's to the 1950's showcasing old-fashioned, conversation pieces donated to the museum by those who grew up in the Texas Hill Country.
Around one hundred million years ago, the Central Texas area was a shallow sea with an abundance of sea and animal life. We have many fossils from this time period found locally on display. If on a tour, you can find some of your own to keep!
