Very nice collection

I had no idea that an anaconda had bones! The rest of the bones were something I really liked to see. I like to know what makes things tick and what holds them together.

Went here with my adult kids and hubby. This is a great find! The museum is filled with incredible pieces ranging from "normal" skeletal pieces to the intriguing and down right odd! Great for kids with some hands on exhibits, scavenger hunt & activities. Has a military/Vet discount!

A local friend took us and it was larger and more educational than I was even expecting. I enjoyed reading all of the information on signs throughout and learned more about biology than I even anticipated I would. We also enjoyed sitting on the bench upstairs to relax and watch the different videos playing (about the museum and the bone... More

Not a large museum, but very interesting. Take the little quiz and learn as you view the different animal skeletons.

I brought my 6 and 4 year olds and they were amazed. I loved how each skeletal had a picture of the animal so I didn't have to answer a jillion questions. This is a real gem of a museum.

Are we all nerds because we thought this was a fun place? Sure but that's ok. It's a small museum but take your time. Don't expect Aunt Edna to be in Exhibit 1. This is primarily animals and birds. Some human skeletons but they mainly show the difference in someone with scoliosis or the progression of the skull through millions... More

This museum is so unique and cool. Unlike anything you've ever experienced, this museum will educate and excite. The collection is well curated and impeccable. My only complaint is I wish it was bigger. I love going here.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We also wish we had more room for even more skeletons, being a family owned museum we feel thankful for the space that we have now. Please be sure to share with your family and friends about your visit. More
