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.

This is a great place to spend a couple of hours even if you aren't a science nerd. The skeleton displays are very well done, frequently showing animals in their habitat or in motion. I wish they provided more educational programs, but the bone pathology program is seriously cool and the presenter (Becca) was engaging and knowledgable, and worked well... More

If you like animals, you and your kids will love this fascinating Zoo of animal bones. It has more animals represented than any zoo we've seen. From whales, elephants, and giraffes, all the way down to a shrew! It has more animal bones than the Museum of Natural History in DC. It is exceptionally well laid out for the smallish... More

It is a wonderful, private, well laid out museum. It focuses on the form and function of the skeletal system of any living thing past or present that ever lived on this planet! So cool!! Great gift store too!

Don't let the size or placement of the building fool you. This is a very large private collection museum with nice facilities. Great for adult science nerds and nerds in training. Be sure to grab a paper scavenger hunt made for several age groups. Much time and effort has been made to create this as an entertainment and learning stop.

This was such a fun visit. Ever since I was young I have had a fascination with bones, and my gosh, this place was wonderful. When you first walk in you are surrounded by large mammal bones, and a tank where they are cleaning bines currently. They have sections of the different mammals, birds, reptiles, ect, with information under all... More
