Daily Tours and Admissions
The admission fee covers access to the property, the museum exhibits, and our traditional Docent-led Boardwalk Tour. (The daily tours only include the traditional Docent-led Boardwalk Tour.) You can purchase your admission in person or online on our Events page.
Our Boardwalk Tour
During the tour, a docent will lead you and your group around the dinosaur trackways through the Cretaceous Garden and along our aerial walkway. Docents discuss the history, geology, and details about the unique dinosaurs that roamed the Texas Hill Country.
In response to COVID-19, we have created new ways for guests to enjoy and interact with our exhibits and Dinosaurs Trackways.
Our docent-guided tours will begin at 12:30 pm and then continue every half hour; the last docent-guided tour will be 3:30 pm.
*Note. All guests will be strongly encouraged to wear masks inside the museum.

LARGE GROUPS OR SCHOOL TOURS.
We offer large group and private tours for homeschool groups, universities, colleges, and more. There is a minimum charge of $50.00, to cover a minimum of 10 people. We also ask for a two-week turnaround to allow for the arrangement of our special docents.
We offer two different options.
You can choose our traditional Docent-led Boardwalk Tour. A docent will lead you and your group around the dinosaur trackways through the Cretaceous Garden and along our aerial walkway on this tour. Docents discuss the history, geology, and details about the unique dinosaurs that roamed the Texas Hill Country.
Fossil Ridge Tour
Or, you can choose our more adventurous tour. The tour is docent-led and offers a guided tour of the different types of fossils hidden in the Texas Hill Country. Groups or parties will travel up the mountain and learn about the different types of fossils, rocks, and Cretaceous creatures that once roamed the area. Each person on tour is allowed to take 1 fossil home!
*Note. All guests will be required to wear masks during any docent-led tour.
We also offer this to smaller groups on the third Saturday of each month. Please see the Events Calendar for the date and the ticket purchase. Please do not submit an inquiry if you are a group smaller than 10.
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!
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!
Antique & Vintage Showcase
Our one-of-a-kind antique and vintage museum collection will take you on a journey from the 1800s to the 1950s showcasing old-fashioned, conversation pieces donated to the museum by those who grew up in the Texas Hill Country.
Native American 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 1800s!
