I really had been looking forward to visiting and when we finally made it, it was worth the anticipation. Really a fun way a spend a few hours and very educational. Worth the $8-ish dollar ticket cost. I would probably avoid going during whatever their "rush hour" because looking closely at the exhibits and taking your time is key to... More

They've got friggin' dinosaur bones. And every other animal you could think of. I've never seen so many bones in my whole life.

This is a wonderful place to spend several hours. It is has easy access off the Interstate and parking is very close. The attention to detail is outstanding. Every skeleton, skull and exhibit is carefully marked and explained. I am a veterinarian and I know bones, this museum goes above and beyond to explain the whys and hows of bones... More

I was surprised to find out that I enjoyed looking at all the bones. There were animals I had never seen and a lot of information about each skeleton. It was educational and fun to go through. This is not a place where you take a quick look and on to the next item, you need to take time to... More

I cannot believe there is a sign for this on the highway. This place is barely larger than my garage. It was very uneventful and not very interesting. I had more fun walking through their gift shop.

We do appear small from the outside but we have nearly 400 skeletons and 500 skulls on display for visitors to see! We pride ourselves on the extensive collection we possess. I did want to mention that the majority of... More

An experience like no other. A must see. This will be enjoyed by all 5 years and up. There is free parking and the attractions and displayed in a interesting manner. There is also some hands on opportunities.

this is one great museum to visit. There's a lot to see, so plan on spending at least two or three hours. The exhibits are very professionally done. This is one of the best museums I've been to. They also have a really nice little gift shop.

The Museum of Osteology is a great place to visit. It is not an attraction to spend the day at. Essentially it is just one large room, two stories, with display cases along the outer walls. Large skeletons are suspended from the ceiling and in the center of the room. It is nice that the kids can touch what is... More
