This museum of skeletons is one of a kind. It has every animal skeleton imaginable. It is a must for the curious little and big explorers. It was founded by a local person and he has put his heart and soul into the museum. The museum has special scientific and forensic classes. The gift shop is "way-cool" too. If you... More

Every kind of skeleton you can imagine, from tiny birds and mice to huge whales and elephants. The kids and adults in my party were equally fascinated and not at all creeped out.

It's a little out of the way, with no huge signs leading to it (i.e. not a tourist trap). Great place. $8. Small - just one big room with 2 floors, but lots of info. The clerk said some take 3-4 hours here.

Small but oh so cool! My 9 yr old really dug this little gem. All kinds of neat discoveries here. Won't take you but a couple or three hours, but highly interesting & educational for all! We will go back for sure! Great lil gift shop as well. Stop by if you get the chance!

I have been to this museum several times and each time a new family member comes to visit from New York I take them. It looks small but it takes 2 or more hours to look at everything if you like to read the interesting plagues. Skeletons from such a variety of animals and information about locomotion and the best... More

It maybe small, but it was well worth the view. Seeing all the different bones was pretty great. The gift ship was just as amazing.

This is an AMAZING place to visit! We had teens and young children and they ALL LOVED it. The staff is very knowledgeable and can be found (unobtrusive) throughout the museum.

This is exactly what it the title suggests. A museum full of bones - animal bones, human bones, bones of people with bone diseases, bones being eaten by beattles. Lots and lots of bones. It's a great place for a science field trip, and it is amazing how many bones are inside. It's a little gross due to the beattles... More

This is a great place to go and see skeletons from all kinds of animals. I was amazed. My grand kids where really impressed and had lots of questions which meant they learned something. I would recommend this place to those who are looking to see something different and want to learn about how life is carried about with bones.
