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.

If you are in Oklahoma, let alone Norman, this is a must see. On par with national museums. Located in the central part of the state just South of OKC, it's easy to get to. Educational and informative. Changing exibits keep it interesting and updated. Great for kids, teenagers and adults.

Great venue. Fun for kids and grownups. Friendly people. Always lots of help available. A bit pricey. Unless you can arrange to go on a free day. Tours are done and audio is avilable

Also really nicely displayed. You walk through a recreation of each epoch. Very educational, but still colorful. No child (at heart) can fail to be captivated by the stories and displays!

Beautiful building houses a diverse and impressive collection ranging from massive dinosaurs to local fauna. They have a great permanent collection as well as rotating "guest" collections.
