Help Texas Through Time move to a new building!

Texas Through Time is a 501c3 Nonprofit fossil museum located in downtown Hillsboro, Texas dedicated to preserving and displaying Texas' diverse fossil record. In just 4 short years, we have outgrown our current building at 110 N. Waco St. and have found the perfect home to move into- a large permanent facility that we can grow into for decades to come!
We have been working out the details & logistics of moving into the historic Junior College building in downtown Hillsboro.
This 40,000 square foot building would give us room to house our current exhibits, collections, a large children's museum wing, many different exhibit halls, event rooms, office spaces and a very large prep lab for fossil preparation and research, as well as having room for large animatronic dinosaurs and interactive exhibits in the future, all under one roof! If Texas Through Time can make this structure its new home, it would greatly increase awareness, research opportunities and the legacy of Texas paleontology.
We are actively working on making this goal a reality and need your support.
The current owner of the property & Texas Through Time are in the final stages of making this a reality. At this point we are asking for donations for legal fees, conducting a feasibility study, drafting architectural drawings, environmental study, etc.

In the past 4 years we have received over 1 million dollars in material donations and currently have hundreds of thousands more pledged.
This is a Texas sized project which will make a huge impact. By donating, you are investing in the future of Texas paleontology and a legacy that will stand the test of time.
