This museum on the campus of Oklahoma University has lots of interesting and interactive things for your kids to see and do. It would be very difficult to see it all in an hour so expect to spend a couple. The admission ($5 adults/$3 children) is affordable enough to take the whole family. The dinosaur exhibits were my favorite and... More

Great small museum that worked well for our 5 year old and 1 year old. Inexpensive and a nice place to visit for the afternoon.

We are an Aussie family, who was never meant to be passing through Oklahoma City. Having to stay over for a couple of days we set about finding something to do with Dinosaurs and rocks we found the museum to be huge, delightful and well presented. We spent hours going through the multiple floors. Everything was clean. We recommend a... More

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
