For the last 20 years, the museum has been trying to protect and preserve over 200 dinosaur footprints and 28 separate trackways. Made approximately 110 million years ago, the footprints and trackways are part of the early Cretaceous period in the upper Glen Rose Formation. 


The Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country is a multi-acre layout, with trackways, hiking trails, Cretaceous fossil digs, and more! We are located midway between Startzville and Sattler on FM 2673.

We strongly encourage masks and social distancing in our museum.

What Makes Us Different?

We offer a very educational docent-guided tour of our dinosaur trackways. Guests will learn about the dinosaurs and history of the trackways, the Texas Hill Country, fossils, and more! Also, we have an extensive Cretaceous fossil collection and Native American artifacts that make our museum unique and exciting to visit!
