For the cost of admittance, I wasn't expecting much- I probably spent more on my last movie ticket; but the quality of the displays and artifacts was truly impressive! All the displays were well done with adequate signage, without boring you to death with mundane details; and most of the displays told some sort of story that even my seven-year... More

We enjoyed this museum, and it would have been even better when my son was small and LOVED dinosaurs. Interesting information about Oklahoma's dinos!

We took a little family outing and came to the Sam Noble Museum because my son LOVES dinosaurs and he LOVED this place! There were several hands on activities, so many things to see that really held his attention, and it was quite educational. We had a great time and would highly recommend stopping here for a visit!

Lots to see, from prehistoric beasties to paleo man and the climate and ecology of Oklahoma. How people and animals evolved throughout the ages. Highly recommend this museum.

My grandson has loved this place in the past. He's 10. This time he said, "It's always the same." Maybe it's time for a few new things to see. For first-time visitors, it's wonderful.

The kids had a great time and so did the big kids! The big dinosaurs and mammoth were fun and the temporary exhibits are always good. We have seen a couple of them. Very worthwhile

We visited on the free day and it was a little crowded---evidently the afternoon was much less busy. A nice museum for kids to run around and explore handson
