Museum Environment

The Museum of Osteology provides quality educational opportunities and allows school groups and the public to explore the form and function of the skeletal system.

From comparative anatomy to classification to adaptation and locomotion, The Museum of Osteology has been designed with learning in mind. Currently displaying over 300 skeletons from all corners of the world, visitors have a unique opportunity to compare and contrast many rare species normally not seen in museum exhibits. In addition, The museum features a variety of North American specimens ranging from tiny mice and shrew skeletons to a 40 foot humpback whale.

We at the Museum of Osteology believe that conservation must begin through education and appreciation of the natural world.
