  • This place is amazing! I thought I was only going to be here for an hour or so but I ended up staying for close to two and a half hours. The founder of the museum and the attached company Skulls Unlimited has created something amazing. You can tell that a lot of time and care has gone into making the displays and it shows. I have been to a lot of museums over the years and this one is on my top ten list. Truly a facinating place to take a curious kid interested in bones.
  • So much fun! It's really interesting and they're constantly updating the exhibits. It's just the right size too. This place is so cool that Jane Goodall visited!!!
  • Great place for all ages. I was pleasantly surprised at how many different animals were on display.
  • FANTASTIC!!!! Do not miss this gem!!! And they have AWESOME Penny smashing stuff and a machine!!! We didn't know what to expect when we went we were blown away this is so well done. The place is clean and everything is very well taken care of. We learned a lot. Super glad we went can't wait to see the one in Orlando
  • Enjoyable for people who love science and biology. It's well laid out and the owners are nice. Small gift shop is filled with treasures of all kinds and we will be going back in the future I'm sure!
