Opened in 2010, this private museum is at once one of Oklahoma City's most unusual and most prestigious. The main attraction consists of the bones of 300 different animal species, and there are another 5000 specimens that are not always on exhibit. The educational displays are taxonomically exhibited. All five vertebrate classes of animals are exhibited over here. The exhibit explain Animal Anatomy, forensic pathology, and animal adaptation and locomotion. Taking over 30 years to compile by Jay Villemarette, this used to be America's only skeleton Museum.

We love this place! My son is 6 years old. We have attended the Halloween Party here for the last 2 years. They have such an incredible collection of skeletons, and the displays are stunning. We will return again and again, and we look forward to attending more educational programs here! If you get the chance to do something hands on, like dissecting an owl pellet, take it! Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.
So informative. We were there for a field trip for our kids. They had a blast and there was so many hands on activities for the kids to do including a scavenger hunt. There are so many cool things in the gift shop as well. We know where we are going for Xmas shopping!
The museum was very informative, educational, and had quite a large quantity of specimens. The bones are well preserved and well taken care of. There are two floors worth of displays, but have a lot of information on each display. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I would love to go back. The staff was also very kind and stayed open a few minutes past closing time in order for us to look through the gift shop as well.
Really really awesome!! The museum was one of the best ten bucks ever spent! Super cool to see so many types of animals on display. The information with them was also very well put together. All of the displays were really well crafted and you can tell love and detail was put into each one. This place is truly awesome and should not be misssed by anyone. Sweet bonus! I picked up a "D" grade coyote skull in the gift shop for 24 bucks!!
Great museum. I don't know how they're able to piece together so many bones on the little animals. There's so many to see and you can even touch some. The giraffe and the whale are pretty neat. I've been a couple of times and they seem to keep adding more.
