The Fossil Discovery Exhibit is here! Our Grand Opening was January 14, 2017. This new exhibit features the Park's 120 million years of paleontologic history.
Big Bend National Park has one of the richest collections of fossils in the nation – over 1100 fossils including 35 Cretaceous-era species. As recently as May 2013 a new fossil, Bravoceratops, was discovered. The Park has so much to intrigue the public, and this new exhibit highlights the best of Big Bend's collection. In addition to educating and entertaining current visitors, the Fossil Discovery Exhibit is attracting new visitors, families in particular, to come see what the Park has to offer.
