  • This museum is smaller than I expected, but my boyfriend and I loved it! Truly fascinating that almost every skeleton in the place is real, and it was definitely interesting to see the skeletal structures of so many different animals, as well as the skulls of different human races! Some of the animal skeletons on display include various felines, dogs, birds, monkeys, and there are even a couple whale skeletons suspended in the air! Go check this museum out for yourself; you will not be let down!
  • World class! This off the beaten path museum is an internationally recognized treasure making it a destination unto itself. This is no "roadside curiosity" but a full museum full of rare specimens impeccably displayed and curated. Delightfully modern and professionally staffed, this is worth the drive, and a minimum of half a day to enjoy. You will be amazed from the moment you step in. Check it out!
  • This is a small museum with plenty of things to see. It takes less than an hour to go through the entire display, but everything that is there is interesting and informative. My family and I usually stop here during our ten hour drive to see family and always feel satisfied with what we saw in the small amount of time that we spend there. I would recommend this as a place to go to and see a part of anatomy that is often not displayed and is very interesting. It is entirely skeletons, in case that was not clear, so be prepared. Overall, I have enjoyed every visit here and will continue to go as long as I can.
  • Pretty awesome, not a bad price either. Can be easily a full day if you are super into bones. Can also be done within an hour if your just looking for something to take the kids to. Worth the drive and time either way.
  • This place was really amazing. So many items to look at and explore. Scavenger hunt for kids of all ages (including adults). Displays are very informative and done in a manner you can really take your time or even get through fairly quickly. Awesome place to visit.
