Great way to kill an hour or so if you're travelling through Oklahoma City. Inexpensive admission. There are skeletons of man and beast, all presented in excellent fashion. Kid friendly. We spotted the billboard along I-35, and thought "why not?". Glad we did.

If you have a desire to look at or study bones, this is your place. The museum is easy to miss. When you enter there are skeletons of most anything you could want to see. If it has a skeleton chances are it is on display, even human abnormalities.

It feels like it's in the middle of nowhere and nothing impressive. Once you go inside, though, it feels a little bit like Mary Poppins' purse in terms of how much stuff is actually in this building. I love this museum!

Very cool and informative museum about bones, classifications, and evolution. When we first arrived we were very shocked at how small the building was on the outside. However, the museum uses the space well and displays the bones based on their classifications. We also found it very interesting for this museum to be in Oklahoma, heart of the Bible Belt.... More

I love this museum! It is so interesting and awesome! I took my 3 and 6 year old. I wasn't sure how they would like it... They LOVED it! They were both hollering at me to look at this and look at that. This is a great museum for all ages! They also have scavenger hunts for 3 different age... More
