If you have not seen the museum, you must next time you are in Norman. Great exhibits of animals and dinosaurs of Oklahoma.

Extremely impressive displays, fresh appearance, and the absence of offensive evolutionary speculation make this one of the nicest, if not the best, natural history museums we've seen.

Most ages will enjoy this museum. I am planning a field trip for my students this summer, so I hope things are as great as I remember from our past visit.

This is a nice place to see fossils and artifacts. The children will enjoy the big dinosaur . Gift shop and food are available so plan to stay the day. People who like archeology will like this place the best.

From the outside, it seems like you are gonna be in the building for hours seeing everything, but instead takes about 30 minutes.

I volunteer at the Museum and see many families with children enjoying the experience and learning and teaching. The exhibits are changed regularly, and many special events are held there. Do not miss this Museum in Norman, OK>

It's a bit high for what you get. I was not impressed. No tour guides. On the plus side it is very clean. The outside is actually more impressive to me. There was 13 of us and it was not busy at all.

It will be interesting to you and will get you out of the house, the one year old will probably enjoy it but not really understand what's going on.
