  • Our boys enjoyed the exhibits. Disappointed with the way the patrons were treated at closing time. There were approx. 5 other families in addition to ours finishing up, yet we received multiple pointed looks from staff as they checked their watches then stared at us. This started about 4:40 p.m. Then we were shut in the gift shop at 4:50 because they were closing. Closing time is posted as 5 p.m. We were not trying to take advantage of their time, however when a family has paid admission & their children are finishing up, most well respected learning facilities will allow patrons to finish before running them out the door, especially if they will be spending more money to support their foundation. Sad to say that this is not the case at the Sam Noble Museum. We had already decided to return to Norman and visit the museum so our boys could finish the exhibits and were planning to make several purchases in the gift shop. We will likely return to see the exhibits, but I will NOT purchase anything in the gift shop to support them further. I will make my purchases elsewhere. Hate that I will give them more business at all, but it's about my boys' learning, not supporting that facility.
  • Awesome museum full of Oklahoma's rich Natural History... and DINOSAURS! This is an excellent, kid friendly (tons of stuff that encourages interaction), wonderfully laid out collection.
  • The museum has a great selection of exhibits that will interest visitors of all ages. The galleries are great to just walk through and look, and the exhibits have a great deal of detail for those that want to take the time to read. There are often very friendly docents that are happy to take the time to show you more fossils and give you a short verbal tour of a particular area. The dinosaur and native american tribe galleries are fantastic!
  • Great exhibits and a wonderful place to learn. The museum had a good emphasis on Oklahoma, but also had some great dinosaur skeletons to look over. Wasn't too crowded, just right. Loved it!
  • Pretty cool place to visit and great for toddlers to walk through and enjoy some of the set ups. I also love that there's a play area specifically for kids!
