The staff is amazing! The exhibits are great. Kids love the dinosaurs. The museum even have a Guiness record dinosaur. We love going for special events, such as spring break or hands-on demo days. The Sutton Bird show was great over spring break. I believe there is a geo cache in the museum, too, if that's your thing. My daughter... More

The Sam Noble Museum of Natural History was better than I thought it would be. We loved visiting this place, its located near The University Of Oklahoma, and is fun for all ages. We will definitely visit again. The day we visited they were having a school field trip, there were many children running around but it was never noisy... More

Took four grandchildren age range 16 to 7 and each enjoyed and loved it. The museum has an exceptional dinosaur exhibit and is laid out in a logical manner. We spent about three hours there including lunch in the museum lunch room. We had lunch late about 1 or 130PM so there was a limited selection - there had been... More

This was a very impressive facility, especially for the price. They had large displays with specimens high and low, gorgeous hand painted backdrops behind the different exhibits, quite a bit about dinosaurs and Oklahoma cultures. Definitely a good family stop, we had a two for one coupon which made it better, expect to spend 1 to 3 hours there.

My kids love this place. So much history, and cool things to see. I was born and raised here in Norman, Oklahoma and I never get tired of visiting the Sam Noble Museum.
