The public is welcome at the Waco Mammoth Site anytime during regular operating hours.  We conduct guided walking tours every 30 minutes, so just show up and join the fun, no reservation needed! Tours last 45 min - 1 hour.

One of our excellent tour guides will lead you from the Welcome Center, down a 300 yard paved path to our Dig Shelter where our mammoth fossils are in situ.  During your tour, you will learn about the Ice Age, how our fossils were discovered, and why we are one of the most important paleontological sites in North America.

Group Admission and Field Trips

We love school tours and large groups! Groups of 20 or more will receive discounted admission. Please book two weeks in advance by calling our Education Coordinator at (254) 750-7946. Pre-booked school tours (including day cares, summer camps, youth groups, etc) get to enjoy an enhanced version of our public tour.

One or more of our excellent tour guides will lead your group from our Welcome Center to the ampitheater where you will sit and learn about the Ice Age megafauna in Texas with the aid of posters and fossil props.  Next, your group will pause on our bridge and discuss the differences between archaeology and paleontology. Your guide will then take your group into our Dig Shelter to view our mammoth fossils and share their amazing stories.
