"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.

"fascinating exhibits"

We visited here on Christmas Day and were glad to find them open on the holiday (although they had reduced hours that day). We love natural history and find animal skeletons fascinating, so this was a great stop for us. (We were told this site is larger than the older Skeletons museum in Oklahoma, which we are visiting next April.) There were over 500 skeletons here, arranged mostly in family groupings. We liked how many were in naturalistic settings (i.e. monkeys in trees, etc.), so you can appreciate how well designed their body is for their survival. Overall, the exhibit designs were very well done and informative; there is good signage throughout the museum, including a photo of each animal portrayed in most cases. All in all, we spent 45-60 minutes at this site, which provides a fascinating glimpse inside animal design. We had prepurchased our tickets online and saved a good amount on each.

"Great museum"

Reviewed January 10, 2020 NEW
We went to this museum and loved it. It looks small from the outside but it isn't. We spent about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We could have spent more time if we had thoroughly read all the information in the cases about the different skeletons. It is self guided so you can go at your own pace. This is at ICon park near Tapa Toro restaurant. There was a huge variety of skeletons and you can watch live beetles cleaning skeletons for display. Overall we had a very good time.It was informative and interesting.

Great time at the Skeleton Museum. The Walton’s found it to be very intriguing. The cashier was very cheerful and courteous. She let us use our tickets for an earlier day because we didn’t know it was inside Icon Park. If you have AAA, you can purchase discounted tickets. Fun for the entire family!

My husband thought this was one of the best museums he has ever seen and he is still raving about it! Although the museum is relatively small in area it is well worth a visit as there is so much to see. The layout and attention to detail in each exhibit was incredible and there were lots of interesting facts about the various creatures. Its location near the Wheel, aquarium. Madame Tussauds etc makes it easy to visit. Go and be amazed!
