SKELETONS: Museum Of Osteology

Osteology is the study of bones, and bones are associated with skeletons, which are of immense interest to people of all ages. The museum in Orlando is affiliated with the first-of- its-kind museum in Oklahoma. With a focus on the form and function of the skeletal system, in Orlando you will see over 40 Exhibits featuring 500 real animal skeletons in clever, mid-action poses. For instance, you’ll see the skeleton of a racoon as it is ravaging the garbage, or a human in a yoga pose. You’ll be amazed at the vast variety of bones on display here, from massive elephants to tiny hummingbirds, and surprised to see the relatively fine bones of a Great Pyrenees. This museum celebrates vertebrate life with the hopes that through education, we can all increase our appreciation of the natural world.

The animal skeletons are classified and grouped into categories such as small mammals, monkeys/gorillas, large predatory land dwellers, great snakes, and fish and birds. Informative signs provide information about natural selection, adaptation, and how shapes of bones affect an animal’s ability to hunt or reproduce. The turtle shell with the projecting bones is fascinating to see, and is a hands-on display which shows how a turtle fits into the shell…world’s first transformer!

Observe the skeleton heads of alligators and crocodiles side by side, making it so much easier to see the differences as well as the likenesses, and see the male and female human skeleton side by side as well for easy comparison. This is a very well curated museum showing many of the animals in their natural habitat. A must-see for anyone interested in anatomy or the natural world, this is also a place that will intrigue everyone, from the youngest to the eldest in your family.

When you enter, take a scavenger hunt sheet, which kids especially will enjoy as they search among the skeletons to complete the game. A video near the entrance demonstrates how the bones are handled and prepared for exhibit, including with the help of beetles, as would happen in the real world. Take a couple hours out of your day to be fascinated while getting an awesome education…you’ll be glad you did!
