Interesting, cool and educational. The museum has a good variety of skeletons on display and is a pretty cool place to visit for any age group. I couldn't really figure out the logical sequence of the exhibits, but that's was the only bone I have to pick with these guys.

We enjoyed visiting this museum, its quite fascinating to see whats underneath the skin of our favorite animals. A great educational tool also. I believe that have special things for homeschoolers, so if you're a homeschooler, its a great outing. Probably between 30 minutes to an hour to go through the whole place, depending on how interested you are. For us, half an hour was enough. Its also right near Sea Life Aquarium and Madame Tussauds wax museum.

There is a lot packed into this museum. The scavenger hunt was fun and informative. My 7 year old daughter loves bones and skeletons but get a little restless toward the end. Well over 300 skeletons. The staff was very kind and helpful.

Saw the Skeleton Museum advertisement in a welcome packet from our hotel and we had to go check it out. My husband and daughter love this sort of thing, and we are all museum people. It was really cool. Displays are well done and grouped well within the museum, and there is large variety of animal skeletons. Particularly liked the birds, with everything from ostrich to hummingbird represented, and the displays with active poses showing the skeletons jumping, etc. It was very interesting to see the movement on a skeletal level. Also, the primate exibit showing the differences between male and female skeletal adaptation. It's not a huge place, but there is plenty to see. We will likely visit again. Found a code for a ticket discount on the museum website, so you may want to check that before visiting.

I recently took my 12 year old daughter and her school friend to the museum. We had a blast. They did the high school activity sheet and really enjoyed the displays. The way they present the skeletons is very cool. The animals look like they are in the natural habitat (some even in trees or “catching” the skeleton of their prey!) and it makes facts easily consumable so it’s fun and educational. I will be coming back again.
