The museum is in SE Okla City but is hard to find because the address takes you down to Moore, where the street numbers confuse. Got there after calling the museum for directions. It was definitely worth the trouble as there were over 300 skeletons(?) and many skulls, including a section of comparative remolds of ancient human relatives. Explanations were... More

This museum is off the beaten path, but worth the trip down and every penny! The collection of skeletons is amazing and covers animals from all over the earth and time. I strongly recommend visiting this museum.

This is a great museum. It is small for a museum but don't let that fool you! They have tons of skeletons to look at and it keeps us busy for about 2 hours each time we go. Our kids are 11 and 8 and enjoy it for about 90 minutes or so. I do see several families who try... More

They even have the skeleton of a coqui from P.R. I like everything! Well the only thing I didn't like where the prices for the souvenirs but other than that, great!

This was a great museum. The displays of the bones were very well done. It was educational, with videos to show how the skeletons were cleaned. Even the gift shop was interesting and unusual. I usually don't buy anything in the gift shops, but I did here.

We live in Nebraska and were traveling to Dallas and found this museum online. We were a little hesitent to stop but decided to give it a try. My boys loved it. The variety of skeletons are amazing and surprisingly not creepy at all. The building doesn't look very big from the outside but don't let that deter you. The... More

This place is somewhat off the beaten path, but a wonderful little museum of bones. Most informative and very well organized.

Saw a brochure for this at the OK travel center and as it was close to our lodging we had to check it out. $7 for adults and well worth it. The museum is nicely put together and for a small space they have a huge collection of skeletons. Went with my 18 yr old son, but this would also... More

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
