  • A highlight of our trip--we spent two hours (we had a science nerd with us) and might have spent more looking at everything they had.

  • This place was fantastic. When we knew we were going to be in OKC, this was our number one family destination choice and it didn't disappoint. All of our kids, from the four year old to the fifteen year old loved it and found things to grab their interest and attention. The displays are exceptional and well marked with descriptions. We spent about two hours and definitely didn't take it all in fully. Definitely recommend!!!
  • I took my 12 year old foster son here and would have gotten much more out of the experience had he been willing to take more time so we could read the accompanying information in each exhibit. The collection is amazing in its size and a lot of thought has been put into the design of each exhibit. I hope to return some day with my physical therapist wife who I know will want to spend hours digesting all the information presented.
  • We brought the kids here, and while they were excited they weren’t sure when we pulled into the parking lot. Don’t be fooled by the exterior or the setting in an industrial park — this is actually a great little museum! The displays are well done with lots of great information and comparisons, there are videos and interactive displays, and we all had a great time for about an hour or so. Nice gift shop too. I’d recommend it!
  • Had a fantastic time. Drove up from the Fort Worth area to have a walk around and it was definitely worth it. Awesome specimens and a great layout. I would definitely visit again. (Bring coins, they have multiple squished penny machines)
  • Wow what a wonderful place. They have all real skeletons from sea animals to land animals including humans. My kid was so amazed. Strongly recommend to visit this place when you are near OK city. Tickets are less than $15.
