If you and your family are into ancient bones, you have come to the right place! Entertaining to both young and old. Not only is it a visual extravaganza but a cornucopia of knowledge that is sure to please all who visit!

This was actually a really neat place. The kids loved it. Parents enjoyed it. Very educational. A little out of the way but not too bad. They have accommodations for field trips. Bus parking and so on.

This was a nice day trip for us and my two younger kids - 5 & 7 years old. It was neat seeing all the bones and was just the right size for the two of them...not too big so that they'd get bored. They had a nice little activity where the kids could answer questions like a scavenger hunt,... More

This is a must see if you are in OKC. This is the best place to visit in OKC hands down. The only comparable collection I've seen was the natural history museum at Harvard, but I think this collection is larger. There is even a small but very nice area for kids. If you are interested in learning then this... More

Great place to learn and compare animals. Kids love it. Well done displays and exhibits. Brightly lit and have interesting learning opportunities for the youngest kids. Adults like it too. It is a pretty small museum but you can spend a lot of time looking at the way animals are put together. Will take a minimum of 2 hours to... More

The Museum of Osteology is incomparable, because there is nowhere to compare it to. They have the biggest collection of animal skeletons on display in one spot. Bigger, I'll bet than the Smithsonian. Each one is perfectly cleaned, articulated and mounted by Master Artisans. It's an amazing place in the rural area south of Del City, Oklahoma and east of... More

I took several bus loads of 8th graders to the Museum. The museum staff was extremely patient and engaging with my students. We did stay too long. I believe it would have gone more smoothly with a smaller group.

We went and enjoyed an hour of walking around the facility. There are so many bones to see and watching the process of the "cleaning" is fascinating. Young people interested in science or medicine would be especially interested in this place.
