we took our 12 year old grandson on vacation. We found most of our stops on Trip Advisor. We originally thought it was going to be dinosaurs, but not disappointed. The museum is well organized and did have old bones, but was great the way they had every day bones. Even tiny hummingbirds. We stayed several hours.

We stop in at least three times a year to check out the exhibits as they do change them up. My son has been a fan of this place since it opened and now he give us "special tours". Amazing articulation around every corner. Such a cool place to look AND touch bones.

Captivating, amazing, informative, fascinating presentation. A natural history museum - down to the bones. Compact museum, well organized, clean, easy to read and a learning experience for all ages. Interesting story on how they clean, prepare and mount the bones. I was impressed by their ability to clean, handle and display the finest hairline bones on the small birds. (and... More

I took my children to this museum. Even at such different ages, (19, 15, & 12) all three of my kids really enjoyed this place. It was very informative and a great way to spend the day as a family. On the way out, we stopped at the gift shop and bought a few souvenirs. I recommend it to everyone.

Unexpectedly excellent collection. Definitely worth taking the 2 hours to have a look. Really small kids might not get much out of it, but our 7 and 11 year old loved it. Great comparative anatomy examples for kids and adults.

This is a compact look at the science of boneage. The exhibits are well placed and have interesting descriptions. There is a scavenger hunt which is fun and educational. Don't let the size of the building detour your visit. Bones, we all have them!

This by far was probably one of the coolest museums of ever seen. I get to see all the skeleton structures of many different animals prehistoric and today's. Very informative and amazing to see.

We loved this! My daughter loved it even more. She loved the scavenger hunt that was available to the children. It is a must do for younger kids. Educational. Interesting.

This is a unique museum and well worth the visit! There are many skeletons displayed, all labelled with correct scientific names. Some information on the type of animals, the species, ... is also provided. There are both very small as well as very large skeletons on view. Probably too much information for small children but for an adult it is... More

An extensive collection of skulls and bones, they had everything from whales to pooches and humans. As soon as you walk in, you get to see how the bones are picked clean of all flesh. The museum is small in comparison to other museums, but I believe they used the space they were given more efficiently also. There are 2... More
