  • Another stop in the offbeat museums of OKC is the Museum of Osteology. Say what? The study of the structure and function of the skeleton and bony structures. For everyone else, it's mostly a bunch of ...  more »
  • Went here a few years ago with a few friends as was totally surprised by how neat it is! I think about it often and can't wait to take my 9 month old son when he is older. It's kind of off the beaten ...  more »
  • This museum is a bit off the beaten path, but so interesting! My three kids, ages 7, 9, and 11 were enthralled with the exhibits. I was really blown away by the quality and we are Museum junkies! But,...  more »

  • I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived but I was very pleasantly surprised! The exhibits were great and lots of details, very informative. This was a very interesting museum. It's pretty small but they have tons of bones. Signage is great so you always know what you're looking at. This museum is somewhat off the beaten path. Be aware there is no food or concessions and there aren’t any available restaurants nearby that we could find (besides gas station fare), so don't plan on spending the day there.
  • The museum is smaller, but is packed full of bones of many species including information on most. Hands on exploration is encouraged on any not behind glass. Don't miss the flesh eating small beetles exhibit in the entrance foyer. Natural way to prep bones for exhibition. We had a group of 20, got a discount, and attended the skulls class. Polly was wonderful with the kids taking time to explain and encourage participation. The class held my active 7 year old's attention, who then excitedly went on one of the age appropriate scavenger hunts. Recommend!
  • Clean safe environment, educational yet fun and exciting at the same time, unique experience. Staff wonderful, helpful and engaging. A must see for all ages.
  • A must see for the avid bone lover. Great place and excellent environment. Staff is very knowledgeable and love their job.
  • Went here today for my daughters birthday. Awesome place! I could have spent days here! Allow yourself at least 2 hours here! The gift shop is amazing! The ladies working here are friendly and helpful! I will be coming here again soon!!
