I went to the Museum of Osteology for some history and science for school. I surprised me with MANY interesting skeletons and information. I learned more than was expected! The gift shop had a lot of fun and interesting toys - even REAL bones for purchase! My favorite thing about my trip to the Museum of Osteology was seeing the... More

You know you've always wondered what a giraffe's skeleton looks like. Business travel recently took me to Oklahoma City where I saw the museum's billboard while driving on the interstate from the airport. Always intrigued by the possibility of finding a unique tacky tourist site, this museum was far more than I expected! Very educational, and not tacky at all.... More

We loved this museum. Took our 12 year old grandchild. It was a good experience especially if you do the scavenger hunts. Learned so much.

I took my two grandsons nine and ten years old her in July and all of loved it. It is a small museum but we spent over two hours there. The museum had treasure hunts for multiple age groups and after they completed their age groups they did all the other age groups. It was very entertaining and educational. I... More

The Museum of Osteology was a fabulous adventure for my kids and me during a group homeschooling field trip. It's just big enough to take 2-3 hours in and not become bored. If it was any bigger it might be too much for the average one time visit but there is certainly enough to go back again a few more... More

Our family of 5 - 19, 16, 10 yo girls…not thrilled at attending… Made the top 3 of our 7 day road trip across 3 states. This was REALLY COOL. I know, bones sound boring. Maybe even GROSS. Read the other reviews to hear all the details - yes, the bugs eating flesh is gross (?) but even I, very... More

Heard from some friends who visited recently so we made it the tent-pole of our recent visit to OKC. It's tucked away on the outskirt of the city surrounded by industrial area but I guess it brings a different sense of anticipation to it... The admission price is reasonable and on the lobby they have a display of how the... More

You'll gain a complete over view of many species from this unique perspective. This is an expansive amount of skeletons etc., but not too overwhelming for young easily distracted kiddos. Plus you can take it all in in little over an hour, so off you can go on to the local splash parks or pizza arcades dotted around the city.... More

On the outskirts of the city after you wonder if you are going in the right direction you will come to the museum. In the foyer you get a close-up look of how they clean the bones. Yucky, but your kids will enjoy it. The skeletons are displayed as if a taxidermist had stuffed an animal, but no skin. There... More

We loved this museum! The skeletons are all in great shape and clean, presented respectfully, and there's a HUGE amount of them to see. We wished we could have spent more time there. The gift shop is awesome too, lots of little oddities to take home with you. No complaints at all here, it was a great way to spend... More
