The Museum of Osteology, Oklahoma City

The first thing we did in Oklahoma City was go to the Museum of Osteology. It is a skeleton museum and according to their website it is the only museum of its kind in the US. I had actually purchased a groupon for the museum so I paid half price for admission.

The museum is basically one open area with two floors. Here is a picture of the museum from the top floor:

Right when you enter there are scavenger hunt papers that you can do while you look around and they are set up by age. The youngest is 6-12 so that what I got for both boys. We were also told that the museum is interactive so you are allowed to touch.

The largest skeleton in the museum is the humpback whale. You can see it from the front in the picture above and the picture below is from the side.

The smallest bird skeleton (maybe just the smallest but for sure the smallest bird) in the museum was the Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

The tallest was definately the giraffe.

I also took a picture of the Greater Roadrunner because I took a picture of the live one in Wichita Falls so I figured I’d take a picture of the skeleton too.

When we finished looking at everything the boys got pressed pennies and then we went into the gift shop and they bought some stuff. Connor wanted to take a picture with the things they bought by the sign.
