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.  

Even though Texas may not require masks, our dinosaurs do! We will still require masks and social di

Our Mask Policy

We strongly encourage masks and social distancing in our museum.
