As an instructor for international students at the University of Oklahoma, I found my students learned so much about Oklahoma and the US just by visiting this museum. It enlightened them as to the history of the country and they learned much about the local animals and habitats. They found the dinosaur and Native American exhibits the most interesting. There...

If you like natural history, you won't be disappointed by this place. Great place to learn about dinosaurs and other natural history that abounds in Oklahoma. I grew up there and did not know about a lot of the natural history of the state or the region. Great place for kids, but allow plenty of time. Very well done and... More

We weren't expecting such a wonderful museum in Norman and were blown away. We only had about 2 hours and should have allowed much more time to give the museum it's fair due. We only made it to the Orientation Gallery and the Hall of Ancient Life but they were great. The Orientation Gallery gives you an overview of the... More

This is a great museum, where you can find different displays for different ages and preferences. I went to this museum at least five times in the past three years and always found something new to see and even to do.

For adults and kids alike, this place is worth a visit. One could spend several hours perusing the displays. Lots to see and the displays change regularly.

This museum is amazing. They have an event each month where you can bring items in for identification (relics, meteorites, rocks, bones). I am bringing some things in that I am curious about. It is very clean inside and they have a great store and deli. Doesn't cost very much, either. We will keep coming back for that reason. Oklahoma... More

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

You wouldn't think that a little college town like Norman would have such a great natural history museum. It has one of the largest dinosaur skeletons anywhere. Definitely worth a visit.

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!
