"Must See visit in Orlando!!!!"
December 2018
We saw this Museum featured on a television show, and it lived up to the hype plus some. It was educational and entertaining. Purchasing tickets through Reserve Orlando was very simple.

"Loved, Loved, Loved This Museum. Best Kept Secret In Orlando!"
November 2018
Wow! I bought tickets for SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology through the Reserve Orlando website for almost half the price I would have normally paid. The deal was so great, I didn't know if it was real or not. It was real! SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology was absolutely amazing, and I wonder why I had never heard of it. The staff was super-friendly, educated, and willing to answer any questions we had. When we checked in, the gentleman noticed my daughter had a sketchbook and offered to bring her a chair when she wanted to sketch. Now that is customer service. The museum has set up several vignettes of all sorts of animal bones in super-cool and interesting ways! For example, they have a bear skeleton pilfering through a picnic basket. I was simply amazed at all the displays from the smallest rodent to a towering giraffe. As I enjoyed the museum, I wondered how many hours was put into each project. I 100% recommend that everyone should visit SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology. I have been all over the world and haven't experienced anything like this! I also recommend using Reserve Orlando for purchasing tickets to this and other Orlando destinations whether you are a tourist or a local like me. My daughter first heard about this place at Seminole State College's Art Club, and she wanted to visit to sketch skeletons for her art portfolio. She had great subjects and we both had a fantastic time.

"Educational and impressive collection"
September 2018
Purchasing tickets the night before, when we discovered this little gem was super fast and efficient through the Reserve Orlando website. Parking was in close proximity and free, which is an added bonus. The museum employees were very friendly and welcoming, assisted with every question our group had. The museum itself was very expansive, not cramped at all, and boasts an impressive collection of 100% authentic skulls. I am glad we stumbled upon a recommendation of this place, and we were able to purchase discounted last minute tickets through Reserve Orlando website.

The Museum and it's staff was not only amazing in sight and collection but the service and and attention to their customers was beyond what anyone could ever expect. As a visitor I was taken a back by the collection and displays the museum had. As an event host, this venus was the best I have ever used from start to finish they are the best of the best. Sam T. and the entire team did everything they could with a smile and grace. I couldn't have asked for a better team to work with nor a better venue! Thank you to SKELETONS!!

"Best interest-specific museum ever!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 08, 2019 NEW
By far one of the best special interest museums we have ever been in! As homeschoolers we are always looking for fun education opportunity, and Skeletons did NOT disappoint! My daughter is heavy into skeletons and osteology and she is also an artist. We asked if it was okay to sketch while we were in the museum and Eddie was more then supportive of the idea. Eddie and Victoria were AMAZING!!! They were attentive, explained the owl pellet dissection add-on opportunity, and even offered to bring my daughter a chair when she started sketching. We arrived three hours before close and spent all that in the museum. It was tranquil, educational, and just perfect for my family and I. Thank you so much to all the staff at Skeletons! You are doing amazing things for the future of this world. ❤️

This museum is great to visit! Its fairly new and its unbelievable as to how many real skeletons they have packed into this place. Take you time and look at it all! There is a lot packed into a small area. I couldn't believe some of the old bones they had in there! Skulls from hundreds of years ago!
