My first time to be in this kind of a museum. Very interesting. Well laid our and signed so you know what you are looking at. Not very big so you can tour in a couple of hours.

We gave this place a try given the high reviews but were very disappointed. The museum is very very small and you pretty much have to force yourself to slow down so you wont seem as a snob by leaving within 30 minutes of getting there. This is not for young kids, trust me they will be bored very quickly... More

We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived but we're very pleasantly surprised! The museum is very informative and the staff are awesome! First thing walking in the door you can see various parts of a skeleton being cleaned (Great Dane skull when we arrived). Great for those neat sight trips!

It's a very easy drive to this small, fascinating museum. There is a lot to see!! The exhibits are very well laid out and interesting. It was easy to read the information included with the exhibits. They also have scavenger hunt sheets - for almost all ages, including adults. And there were an amazing number of skeletons!! This museum is... More

There are exhibits to peruse, some for hands on exploration, and optional quiz sheets to do for free prizes. Our little ones (3, 5 and 7) got a little bored now and then, but otherwise we all enjoyed parts of this museum. The cost was very competitive with other attractions and this one small building WAY outdid the OKC Zoo... More

We can see why this is number two attraction in Okc. Two hour self guided tour of skeletons of every animal imaginable. Well worth the low admission fee. In an out of theway place but well worth the drive.

The museum is only two stories and small for a museum but packed with lots and lots of animal skeletons. The largest ones are worth seeing just by themselves. You probably wouldn't spend more than 60-90 minutes here max but it will be worth your while. The only thing that detracted from my visit was it was also a day... More

This museum is very interesting, they have an amazing collection. The building seems pretty small from the outside but there is so much to see once inside. It is worth a visit.

Love this museum! Our first visit we weren't sure what to expect, but we were all enthralled with the exhibits. Have been back several times and always find something different. Great family excursion, reasonably priced and something the kids will talk about for months.
