I have seen the signs for the Museum several times and finally make the turn off the freeway and visited. What a treat! Not a bunch of old dinosaur bones but skeletons of contemporary animals and much more. An amazing collection and well worth taking the time to visit for only $6. Don't miss it if you are near Oklahoma City.

Our friend is a professor and knew of this museum. We found it very interesting, educational and fun. Would not ever have guessed that a company and museum of this quality was in South Oklahoma City. We will certainly tell our friends and bring our grandchildren to see it.

We visited after seeing a leaflet in our hotel, without thinking to check the Tripadvisor reviews. We were a bit worried when we saw from the outside how small it looked, but we were instantly engaged when we entered the main room. So much so that we almost missed the large skeletons in the middle of the room, we were so busy looking at the cases round the sides.

The exhibits are very well organised into species groups, and the small size of the museum actually helps with the presentation as you can see all the examples of a particular genus in close proximity to each other and compare and contrast them. It's amazing how closely skeletons from different species do resemble each other, and does fit the suggestion that they came from common ancestors. It's a shame that the museum felt the need to place a sign defending the scientific presentation of the theory of evolution here, it wouldn't be necessary in a museum in London.

The curators have done a fantastic job, and I wasn't surprised to find it listed as a top attraction in Oklahoma City.

Our daughter is really into anatomy, and paleontology, so when we saw this place advertised...we made plans for a visit. We weren't disappointed. The museum space is huge and well laid out. We walked around for about an hour...marveling at all the specimens and snapping tons of pictures. We we started to leave, we stopped by the gift shop and the owners were there. They were the sweetest people! They took the time to answer all of our questions and even introduced our daughter to their cute little pet marmoset. Really cool museum and great owners. Go out and support them! You'll have a fun time!
