Alert: Due to large crowds expected during spring break, we will not run guided tours from March 8 through March 18; however, ticketed entrance to the Dig Shelter will allow guests to visit with Park Rangers about the fossil bed at your leisure.

We're a National Monument!

On July 10, 2015, the President signed an Executive Order designating the Waco Mammoth National Monument! This prestigious honor was made possible through years of collaboration of the City of Waco, Baylor University, Waco Mammoth Foundation and the citizens of Waco. Waco Mammoth National Monument is the 408th unit of the National Park Service and 14th unit in Texas.

Visit the Waco Mammoth National Monument on the National Parks Service website.
