Participants are also invited to our Boonville Days Heritage Festival, a free drive-through event in the Museum parking lot, 9 am - 12 pm, on Saturday, October 3rd. This year the event is dedicated to all the frontline heroes serving our community during this global pandemic. 

There will be entertainment along the drive-through, including Pat Gavin and the Buckaroo Band, with their authentic chuck wagon; a full-size 19th century stagecoach replica from the Buggy Barn Museum; re-enactors in period dress; “Mo” the live Bison; and more! Visitors may also pick up a free activity/craft packet while supplies last to take home and enjoy with their families. 

Race finishers can stop by with their free passes to visit the Museum anytime Tuesday - Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm. The beautiful nationally touring exhibit, BISON, will be on display until November 14, followed by a fascinating exhibit showcasing the natural history of birds. 

There is always something new at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History! For more information visit our website, follow us on Facebook, the BCS Stampede Facebook, or call 979- 776-2195

The Museum, located in the Brazos Center, is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. Regular admission fees: adults $5; seniors/students/children $4; children age 3 and under are free.
