This is definitely worth seeing, there are lots of skeletons and they are posed so you are able to see all sides of them clearly. Upstairs and downstairs, no room is wasted, its all skeletons. Great gift shop too where you can take home your own!

This was a great trip for our family. They have scavenger hunts for various age groups. We had a 5, 7, and 9 year old and all 3 were actively engaged in their hunts. Don't let the small building fool you. They pack in tons of stuff in a small space. We spent about an hour and a half because... More

We were with some friends who wanted to visit this museum and decided to tag along. Never expected to have such a great experience! My 12 and 14 year old also had a great time. Definitely worth the trip!

I went to this museum with family and some visiting children. We had a great experience and it was very interesting. There are different scavenger hunts for kids separated by age groups that you can do while walking around the exhibits. They had a small area with hands on for kids. The museum is well organized with the skeletons sorted... More

Very nice museum. Exhibits are well done and very informative. Facility is well maintained and very comfortable. They have a an excellent variety of different Amina's skeletons, from insects, birds, marine animals and domestic livestock. You can watch the Beatles clean bones as well. Staff was friendly and informative. Do t miss this one.

We spent three days with 3 of our grandchildren in OKC visiting all the museums. The Museum of Osteology was the kids favorite, we all enjoyed it plus learning at the same time.

This is the most unusual museum I've ever been to. To think it started as a hobby and became such an amazing collection of skeletons! It's a bit on the outskirts of the big city and housed in a plain building, but don't let that skew your initial impression. This place is a surprising gem of natural science for all... More

While this place is a bit off the beaten path, you can get here from either Interstate 35 or Interstate 240 in a short time. Like most hometown attractions, the locals sometimes don't see the forest for the trees around them, but when you get inside you will be amazed at the amount and variety of skeletons and information on...

This was not the families first choice but we were glad that we went. In fact it was our teenage sons favorite thing so far. There are skeletons of hundreds of things like the first chimp in space. They have a treasure hunt for the kids that made checking out the exhibits more meaningful for them. Very interesting place!
