  • We like others had look at Trip Adivsor for something to do in the area. This was a neat stop for us on our day of adventure in OKC. Well worth your time and $8.

  • 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
  • It looks really small on the outside but it is actually pretty big and open on the inside! There a lot of cool specimens on display here and lots of good info. They also have a nice gift shop.
  • Love it love it love it. Very informative and kids had a great time and folks were informative and really cared about and enthused the kids
  • This was a pretty cool place. I think it was a bit pricey at $8 per adult for one l large open room. Still we were able to spend an hour and a half here. We learned some cool things and saw what my cats skull looked like. I do recommend it.
  • As soon as I walked in, I was welcomed by a friendly staff member. Once I went through the doors, I was amazed to see how awesome a collection they have there. It is so worth seeing, especially if you are an animal enthusiast. They have done a wonderful job putting these skeletons on display. Great for adults and children.
