“One of the best hidden jewels in the OKC area!”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

I came to the museum not only out curiosity and a love of science, but also on assignment for OKC.NET webzine. I brought my husband along, and we were both amazed at the collections and how they were displayed. It was amazing to see such a huge collection of skeletons all in one place. The staff were extremely friendly, the admission price was more than reasonable, and the gift shop is one of a kind. I can't wait to bring my friends and family back here!

“A fantastic educational journey to the inside of the animal kingdom.”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

You will rarely spend such a low price for so much. Wow! were we suprised and enthralled viewing the inside story of members of the animal kingdom we knew and did not know many in their natural habitats. The genetic anomalies were a definate bonus.

“Even if you don't like Museums, you will like this place!”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

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.

“We had a very interesting fun day”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

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.

“Very well presented!”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

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.
