A brief introductory video gives a general overview of bones, which is very interesting:
Some of the very first skeletons Guests see at the beginning of the visit include human skeletons. They help to have a clearer understanding of how much animal skeletons differ from human bones:
Ever wondered how the interior of a turtle looks like? Wonder no more!:
Continuing our visit:
In this area, Guests may take a look at skeletons of primates:
One of the most unusual sections of the attraction:
Bigger mammals are not left out; as a result, some of the skeletons are much taller than the average adult:
More large animals:
One of our favorite parts is definitely the bats section. It is amazing to take a close look at such amazing animals. While we love to see these creatures, we have to admit that they look quite intimidating:
The back portion of the museum:
Heading to the African themed area:
Notice that a themed background accompanies some of the larger displays:
Even penguins are featured:
The last part of the museum:
A quite out-of-the-ordinary aquarium:
An interactive feature can be found near the exit of the attraction. Guests can learn more about the process that is followed to obtain the skeletons and to clean them. While some of the images may be considered graphic, you have to keep in mind that it is essentially part of the circle of life:
A note explains where the skeletons displayed come from:
The very last section of the museum even features some well-known mythical creatures:
The photo with the big looking things.
Is that how they clean the skeletons?
All I could think of was the Mummy and those beetles. lol
Does this represent an expansion or additional publi museum location for the Ostelogy Museum of Oklahoma City? The way the skeletons are displayed and several of specific exhibits (like the racoon skeleton with a box of Milk Duds) are unmistakeably the same.
Thank you for your interest! Skeletons: Animals Unveiled is in fact a second location of the Museum of Osteology in Oklahoma City both owned by the parent company Skulls Unlimited.
We hope you'll come check it out!
With Warmest Regards,
