Skeletons displayed from every type of animal you can imagine. It does sound strange but is quite fascinating.

Wasn't too sure how this was going to turn out but ended up staying over 3 hours. The skeletons are displayed well and information about the animals is pretty complete. I'll never look at an animal the same way after seeing all the structure under the skin. The smaller animals were amazing to inspect! So tiny! Well worth the admission. Look for coupons in the visitor guides.

This is not my usual type of museum of roadside attraction, yet I was delighted to check it out last year. Parking was easy. No lines or crowds. My only regret is that I was not in the right mindset to completely enjoy and learn from my experience in this museum. The museum is very photo friendly and has a lot of places to take photos. This was the first thing I noticed. I loved that the museum had well displayed skeletons. The scavenger hunt meant for kids was VERY enticing, and you get a surprise gift in the end. One of the coolest parts was seeing how happy and excited people were to see the exhibits and take pictures in the museum. I, also, loved how people were sketching the skeletons on their Ipads. I liked checking the replicas of prehistoric human skulls. My friend,Matt, took me to see the museum as an early Christmas gift. He had designed the brochures and bright banners displayed out of the museum. The colors he used popped out and were very inviting. Even though I was not in my usual optimistic and curious mood, I asked Matt to take me to the parts of the museum he and his children liked the most. He showed me the gigantic skeletons in the back and the flesh eating beetles. I plan to come back to the museum again and spend more hours in it next time I visit. Another perk about this museum is that it is next to a big ferris wheel. I want to ride it at night and see all of Orlando under the stars. So far, this is one of my go to places in Orlando, Florida. I highly recommend this place for family friendly fun learning experience, a unique romantic date, or a place to go solo.

We visited with our young kids that are 6, 4, & 1. My husband and I enjoyed it a lot more than they did. The exhibits are set up in a way that you can really visualize the animals as you would normally see them. It was very educational and informative while still entertaining. Older kids would probably do a lot better (and you would get to look a little longer)! Such a great place to go spend a couple of hours!

Located in the I-360 complex, just under the Orlando Eye. Amazing museum of skeletons from the largest to the smallest, domestic to wild animals. Don't be fooled by the retail store front, great gifts and trinkets for all ages. Enjoying and getting the most out of a visit will take 1 to 1.5 hrs, its small but well presented. Nice layout and beautifully presented skeletons in active and normal poses. Staff were very helpful answered questions and gave some background only the museum. Informative plaques accompany each skeleton describing the animal and facts. Don't miss the display of bugs cleaning new skeletons. Parking under the Eye or at the multi-story parking lot. Tapas bar, Ben & Jerry's, and other venues just outside the museum.
