Amazing they were really nice to us and our kids. They showed us a movie before we could look around the museum either guided by the map or an app on your phone you can download. The Mock Dig site was worth it for the little ones too.

Oh this place was so fun. We brought our 6 year olds. They enjoyed the exhibits and the mock dig. It was a great Sunday adventure.

About Fossil Discovery Center

The Fossil Discovery Center, presented in partnership with the San Joaquin Valley Paleontology Foundation, transports visitors nearly 700,000 years into the past to the site of one of the largest middle-Pleistocene fossil excavations in North America. Discovered in 1993, the site now sits adjacent to the Fairmead Landfill in Madera County, just within view of the foothills where rivers once carried the bones down into the valley.

  • Permanent mainstay: The main exhibit showcases the many species discovered at the site, including saber-toothed cats, horses, camels, giant sloths, and (now-extinct) antelope.
  • Eye catcher: a 13-foot-tall replica of a Columbian mammoth paired with a 12-foot-tall short-faced bear
