Young ones will delight in the dinosaurs and adults will be amazed at the dinosaurs and the interesting displays. Upstairs it's all about bugs. A nice museum to visit over and over.

A highlight visit to Oklahoma! The museum contains a wonderful depiction of Oklahoma's nature and life through the eons. There are artifacts, beautiful dioramas and descriptions to supplement the presentations. There are many "hands on" displays for the children to experience.

My grandchildren (3 & 4) love to go to the dinosaur museum. It's on their monthly routine, so much so that my daughter bought a yearly pass for them. They've invited me to join them on several occasions. Truly a treat.

It had some nice exhibits and it was very informative. They have some impressive skeletons of dinosaurs and other creatures. I enjoyed learning a bit more about Oklahoma's natural history and native cultures.

This is an unbelievable museum. Being attached to a public institution, this is argueably one of the best natural history museums. You will see things here that no other place has. The dinosaur collection enough makes it worthwhile. There is a triceratops-like skeleton with an...More

Did the whirlwind tour as part of a conference I was attending. It is a beautiful museum broken generally into two major sections, dinosaurs and living things. Both, while smaller than similar museums in New York and Chicago, are very well done. I focused most...More

Beautiful museum with lots of displays. Some of the best, if not the best, dinosaur displays that I have ever seen. They have a lot of hands on displays which keeps the younger ones engaged. Highly recommend. And when we went because my husband was...More

It will be interesting to you and will get you out of the house, the one year old will probably enjoy it but not really understand what's going on.

This museum has several exhibits dedicated to findings (fossils, specimens, etc.) native to Oklahoma and had several fossil specimens on our last visit. Because they loan/receive exhibits throughout the year, I would call... More
