One hundred million years ago, Texas and most of what is the central part of North America was a shallow sea with an abundance of sea and animal life.

Located in the beautiful Canyon Lake area, the Heritage Museum of the Texas Hill Country has Native American artifacts with an extensive collection of early projectile points and arrow heads, early pioneer displays, including farm machinery, the Canyon Dam history, fossils, a gift shop, open-air picnic area and the Heritage Garden with native Texas plants and a Cretaceous Garden with the types of plants that grew in our area 110 million years ago.

Dinosaur Track Pavilion

Dinosaur tracks are at the same site. Probably the most prolific site in Texas, in terms of number. These tracks were made during the deposition of the upper part of the Glen Rose Formation roughly 100 million years ago.

One hundred million years ago, Texas and most of what is the central part of North America was a shallow sea with an abundance of sea and animal life and thus many fossils from this time period have been found locally.

The museum offers self-guided tours and docent-guided tours can be arranged. HMTHC is a 501(c) tax-exempt non-profit organization.
