I was amazed at this place. Really extraordinary skeletons, all beautifully prepared, of small mammals, birds and fish all the way up to huge African game. Really worth a visit and a great break from all the fake Mickey Mouse stuff. Brilliant!

We visited here on Christmas Day and were glad to find them open on the holiday (although they had reduced hours that day). We love natural history and find animal skeletons fascinating, so this was a great stop for us. (We were told this site is larger than the older Skeletons museum in Oklahoma, which we are visiting next April.) There were over 500 skeletons here, arranged mostly in family groupings. We liked how many were in naturalistic settings (i.e. monkeys in trees, etc.), so you can appreciate how well designed their body is for their survival. Overall, the exhibit designs were very well done and informative; there is good signage throughout the museum, including a photo of each animal portrayed in most cases. All in all, we spent 45-60 minutes at this site, which provides a fascinating glimpse inside animal design. We had prepurchased our tickets online and saved a good amount on each.

We went to this museum and loved it. It looks small from the outside but it isn't. We spent about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We could have spent more time if we had thoroughly read all the information in the cases about the different skeletons. It is self guided so you can go at your own pace. This is at ICon park near Tapa Toro restaurant. There was a huge variety of skeletons and you can watch live beetles cleaning skeletons for display. Overall we had a very good time.It was informative and interesting.

Great time at the Skeleton Museum. The Walton’s found it to be very intriguing. The cashier was very cheerful and courteous. She let us use our tickets for an earlier day because we didn’t know it was inside Icon Park. If you have AAA, you can purchase discounted tickets. Fun for the entire family!
