Statement of Purpose

Exhibit the collection of Mr. Taylor's discoveries and reproductions of dinosaur, mammoth and other types of paleontological artifacts. These exhibits are presented with a "Creation-Friendly" point of view, with data and observations that support it.

Highlights & Collections

Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum, (not a 501(c)3 business), contains an extensive and fascinating collection of dinosaur, mammoth and other bones, reproductions, skulls, full skeletons, footprints/tracks from all over the United States. Mr. Taylor is quite likely the world's best at crafting complex molds for reproduction casts of individual artifacts (skulls) and in-situ (partially excavated) skeletons. Much high quality art work accompanies the exhibits.

The exhibits are intimately arranged, and questions are welcome. Gifts of various kinds: shark's teeth, "T-Rex" teeth (reproduction OR real), buffalo skulls, books on fossils, scriptural topics, cookbooks, saber-tooth cat skulls (in bronze, cement, or fiberglass!)

A meeting room is available for lectures or teaching sessions for visiting experts in a variety of fields.

Visitors will find their views of the wonders of God's Creation supported, expanded, and verified in a trip to Mt. Blanco Museum, and they can see a complete triceratops and mammoth skeletons completely assembled. It is amazing what size these animals were, how huge their heads, how massive their legs and feet! What child wouldn't gasp to see a triceratops, a mammoth with 6' tusks not 4 feet away?

Mr. Taylor's collection of buffalo skulls wonderfully shows the great variety of these animals. More examples of these varied species are coming to light every day, mostly in the Southwest USA.

Mr. Taylor, himself, is a fascinating, unforgettable man. Crosbyton is his hometown. He has devoted the last 25 years to digging, restoring, and reproducing an incredible variety of his own and others' discoveries of fossils and bones. He makes every guest feel welcome.

Mammoth Skeleton reproduction, complete; triceratops skeleton reproduction, complete; trilobites; tiger and lion skulls; three-toed horse; much more! The world's largest (measures 35' X 12') mold and reproduction of partial excavation of approximately 12 individual mammoths discovered near Waco, Texas. (Mr. Taylor has just completed the commission to cast this mold for permanent display in Baylor University's new exhibit hall. This is quite likely the world's largest and most complex work of this type.
