After seeing a flyer for the museum at our hotel and having some free time, we decided to check this place out. This is a smaller museum, and really didn't look like much from the outside, but inside it is full of skeletons of all kinds of animals. The displays were well done, even humorous in a few spots.

This small two story building was jam packed with skeletons of every kind. There were fish, birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and even humans. You could buy a human skull in the gift shop. This was a very interesting stop. A facility next door accepts carcasses from local hunters to clean for them. Guess it has to be done somewhere.

We went there because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and were glad that we did. Very interesting displays - things that we'd never seen before. I had no idea what osteology was before our visit, but after this trip, my wife and I are well-versed in the world of skeletons!

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.
