Museum is excellent in its presentation of different species (both skeletal and real life form). Grandchildren were fascinated and did not get bored in the 2 hours we spent there. My 8 year old completed the scavenger hunt and came away from visit more knowledgeable and excited about all she learned. Taking the questions back to Scotland to share with... More

Very cool bone displays of everything from insects to people and whales. There's a couple of little benches you can sit and watch videos where the museum is featured on several cable shows. Lots of creativity and humor went in to setting up the bone displays. Definitely worth the trip.

My daughter and I had gone there in 2012 when we passed through. We decided to go again and wasn't disappointed! They had a few new things. There are lots of skeletons of humans and various animals. We ended up spending 2 hours there. There's also a nice gift shop. The staff are very friendly. I recommend it to anyone... More

I didn't think I would like this museum. I thought it would be boring - just full of bones. But to my surprise, we loved it! It had lots of skeletons with lots of good information. There were two stories of skeletons and it was pretty amazing to compare them all. We learned a lot about which animal each skeleton... More

This was a fun, neat museum experience. I personally get creeped out by all of the bones, but my kids loved it. They had a fun scavenger hunt for children, with the difficulty ranging by age of child. It was kind of hectic going through the hunt, but it's because we have four children. It looks small on the outside,... More

We were just driving through Oklahoma City and we decided to take our son based on TA reviews. Wow! What a museum! So clean and well put together. The presentation is excellent. Very impressive. If in OKC, this is a must.

Spent the weekend in Oklahoma City to see the zoo, the bombing memorial and "The Bone Zoo" as the locals call it. Are planning to go back because there was WAY too much information to soak up in the short hour we allowed for our visit. If something could actually be called a Bone Zoo, this is it. The place...

Loved the Museum of Osteology! We made a spontaneous stop there in between other activities, and every member of our group really enjoyed the different skeletons and displays in the Museum.

The mark of a great museum, in my opinion, is that it inspires interest of its topic among people who are not ordinarily interested in that topic. This museum does this marvelously. The information given about each section is so interesting that I found myself wanting to read almost every plaque. You can also see the creativity and enthusiasm put... More
