  • This is a really neat place to go visit. It is a little gem with an incredible story. The collection of skeletons is vast and beautifully arranged. The attention to detail is amazing. The staff are super friendly and helpful. They have a great shop on the way out as well as challenges for the kids who visit. The skeletons on display are touchable and just amazing. Thanks for this !

  • This place is AMAZING! Looks simple on the outside and is a little off the highway, but it is a must see attraction for kids and adults! So well organized and informative. Even my husband, who dislikes museums, had a great time. It's organized by animal groups with multiple skeletons from each group so you can see similarities. The bison skeleton was really cool. There are two floors with glass cases around the perimeter for you to view the small and medium skeletons. The elephant and other giants are in the middle where you can touch them and stand beside them for scale. They had more unusual animal skeletons than I expected, such as a whole section of flightless birds like the cassowary and an area with different dog breed skeletons...even a pug! Read the information beside the skeletons, it's crazy interesting and short and sweet. Oh, and there are penis bones called baculum. You can buy one in the gift shop, which is also filled with unusual, fun stuff! This science junkie was impressed!

  • This is an amazing place. It had so many different animals arranged very orderly. I found that it put quite a bit of high school biology into perspective like why birds have that long crest in their rib cage without beating you over the head with educational material. There is also a sense of playfulness when they put some of the prey next to the predators.

  • This museum was intriguing!! I have never seen anything like it! It was fun and educational. 8 dollars per adult to see 2 stories of skeletons! Humans, dogs, cats, birds, rhinos, whales, etc from all across the world! They will even let you go to the back storage room and see even more. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I would recommend this museum to anyone that finds this interesting. Oh, and you can buy real human and other animal skulls/skeletons!

  • Amazingly unexpected and good museum! Me and my family went there and it was jam-packed with educational information! It was smaller than I expected, but still cozy and good! My sister and I did the scavenger hunts appropriate to our age and we had fun looking for them! I DEFINITELY recommend people to go there.
