The Waco Mammoth National Monument has had a record-breaking spring with thousands of people coming to visit one of our natural treasures. The National Monument has currently reached capacity for end-of-the-year school field trips, but it is still open daily for public tours. 

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.
