We have visited this museum several times, and it has a great display of Oklahoma's natural history. This last time we visited they had the special display of the influence of skateboarding in the Native American reservations. My kids thought the art on the boards were pretty cool! They also had a photograph exhibit about the consumption of food during the course of one week for different families around the world. Talk about eye-opening! The kid's scavenger hunt was in this display, and was a great way to engage the kids in a discussion of the topic of cultures and nutrition. Sam Noble Museum is definitely a must-see!

A superb natural history museum showcasing the majesty of evolution and the life sciences. The Pentaceratops and other dinosaurs, as well as the many fossilized mammals are a perfect tribute to Darwinian evolution as verified by the fossil record. Don't miss looking eye-to-eye with the Apatosaurus, formerly known as Brontosaurus.
