I’m Joe Taylor, the director and curator of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum. If you like fossils, dinosaur digs and other old things you have come to the right place. Check the news reports. We want to show you why we do not believe that the evolution theory or the millions of years concept is good science.
MT BLANCO COMPANIES
The Mt. Blanco companies are for-profit private businesses that are divided into three divisions, Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum, Mt. Blanco Casting Company and Mt. Blanco Publishing Company.
MT. BLANCO FOSSIL MUSEUM
The Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum is a scientific and educational institution dedicated to a correct interpretation of Earth history and fossil remains. We believe that the fossil record speaks of catastrophic events happening several thousand years ago rather than slow processes taking place over millions or billions of years as is held by the popular establishment.
Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for children, ages 6-12. Kids 5 and under get in free.
Group rates are available. Guided lecture tours by Joe Taylor or Sara Bruegel are given for school, church and other groups. Call for group rates. Sara Bruegel also offers special, educational & interactive kids’ workshops on scheduled days during the summer and by group appointment – more info here. If you plan to visit, please call to schedule (806) 675-7777.
The museum building includes a gift shop where fossils and fossil casts as well as books and some scientific papers are for sale.
The building also houses the Mt. Blanco Art Museum which displays some of Joe Taylor’s billboard art of numerous pop music celebrities from the 1970s and 1980s. The entire billboard art collection is for sale. Check our News for latest update on this and other projects underway
MT BLANCO CASTING COMPANY
The Mt. Blanco Casting Company produces molds and sells fossil casts and related items to other institutions, organizations and individuals. The production of these casts takes place at the Crosbyton facilities. The Museum also does fossil excavation and restoration. Some of our replicas are available for purchase online, while many others are also available in the museum.
MT BLANCO PUBLISHING COMPANY
The Mt. Blanco Publishing Company has produced several volumes. The most popular of these are Joe Taylor’s Fossil Facts & Fantasies, now in its second (revised) edition, and Giants Against Evolution. Another Mt. Blanco book is Taylor’s humorous Surviving Bachelorhood – A Cookbook. Also printed is Fossil Man, Dinosaurs & Giant Mammals Together by John A. Watson and Talking Heads: Notes on the Interpretation of the Skulls of Terrestrial Animals by Gregg Thompson. Other projects are also in the works. Find all of our books available for purchase online here.
Mt. Blanco Staff
Joe Taylor is the owner and curator of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum and associated companies. He was born and raised near Crosbyton at the Mt. Blanco community. As a young man he left the area for art school and a career in commercial illustration and advertising design in New York City and Los Angeles. During this time he volunteered at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, California where the saber tooth cat skull which we reproduce is from. His interest was sparked by the rich local fossil deposits and a desire to find out the truth about fossils. The results of this interest are seen in the museum. Mr. Taylor is one of the nation’s foremost fossil restorationists and his work is sought out by individuals, museums and other institutions in this country and abroad. He is a member of the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences (AAPS).
