Texas Through Time is a 501©(3) charity; we operate solely on donations, sales from our gift shop, and proceeds from museum fundraising events. All earnings go directly towards operating and improving the museum for the benefit of the public. We sincerely appreciate every single donation and even offer membership tiers as part of our “Friends of the Museum” Donor program. We also need support from volunteers in the lab, giving tours, outreach & field work.

Future Location


The historic junior college building on East Walnut Street in Hillsboro is 40,000 square feet, which will 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 animatronic dinosaurs and interactive exhibits, all under one roof! Texas Through Time will be working to create a lasting legacy for Texas paleontology.
 This is a Texas sized project and will take years to fully complete, so we will be renovating in increments. By sponsoring a room or exhibit you are investing in the future of Texas paleontology and a legacy that will stand the test of time.
Sponsors of rooms and exhibits will have plaques permanently displayed at the location chosen. Sponsors can be individuals, companies, or foundations.
Contact Carrie LuJan at to learn more.

Fossil Excavations


Texas Through Time is contacted regularly to identify and excavate possible fossils. Although most are not scientifically important, some turn out to be and are often donated to the us.

We are dedicated to preserving these significant finds for future study and display at our museum for future generations to admire and learn from. 

This digs are run by volunteers and can last for weeks at a time. They require much labor and patience to preserve their value upon extraction.

You can help us on these excavations by sponsoring, donating monetarily, or donating meals for the volunteer crew.

We have a few upcoming digs in April-June 2024. 

To find out how you can help, contact Carrie LuJan at

Texas Through Time has volunteer opportunities in many areas. From fossil preparation, to fossil digs, museum tour guides, and more.

Volunteers can profit from learning a vast wealth of knowledge in the field of paleontology, and get hands-on experience that very few paleontology grad students receive.

You can gain real-word experience and further your knowledge in your field of study by volunteering or applying for paid or unpaid internships.
