My girlfriend and I came in it was really cool. I'd recommend it to anybody you home city area if you're living here. If you're traveling, if you have more than one day this might be worthwhile place to come. It's the only one like it in the world! If you're into science stuff then you might like it.

Drove a couple hours specifically to visit. Two floors of neatly-presented and well-lit articulated skeletons. Clean, quiet, informational, fascinating back story. Wonderful selection in the gift shop. It's not terribly big but if you fully appreciate it all you can spend a couple hours there. Would be awesome for school groups but anyone with a curiosity for creatures big and... More

The displays were excellent, informational, and interesting. The scavenger hunt was fun and age appropriate. Only thing I didn't appreciate was the human finger bones for sale in the gift shop. I'm fine with the sale of human remains for research or teaching purposes, but as a memento of a museum visit, it seems disrespectful to people who have donated... More

Visited here at a whim only out of curiosity, and it's really amusing. Got everything about the skeleton displayed detailedly here - especially about the difference regarding bone structure. Definitely will take my kid here in the near future.

This museum is truly one of a kind! There are bones everywhere! My husband and I learned many cool things about the functionality of bones across many different types of species. As animal lovers, it helped us to understand the "whys" behind the different bone structures. The museum makes it even more fun because attendees can complete a zany fact... More

If you got little ones and want to show them something totally unique and fun, take them here. My daughter and I spent 4 hours here discussing fun things about evolution and skeletons of birds. She thought it was super fun. She is 12.

My chiropractor husband wanted to see this place. I wasn't too sure I would enjoy it, too, but it was fascinating. What an interesting way to learn about the variety of animal species we have. We didn't have any children with us, but I suspect elementary aged children in particular would love this museum. Definitely worth it.

A fascinating place in an interesting industrial location. Not far from the highway, so easy to access. We enjoyed our visit.
