Skeleton Museum – Orlando, FL

Disclosure: My families admission to the Museum was provided in exchange for this post.

You will find quite a few attractions to visit under the wheel on International Drive (I-Drive 360) in Orlando. Our favorite spot happens to be the Skeletons: Animals Unveiled! Museum. My kids enjoyed visiting the museum and actually learned a thing or two which is a total win in my book.11This first-of-its-kind, bone filled museum has over 40 exhibits.10The entire museum features more than 400 animal skeletons.4Some of them in clever, never-before-seen poses and dioramas that brands visitors with a whole new respect for the animal kingdom.7All of the bones inside the museum are real bones.


The animals are donated after passing in zoos and/or preserves and then cleaned by the museum and their helpers.5Their helpers are Glesh Eating beetles, also known as Dermestid Beetles that eat all flesh and non-bone material off of the bones. My boys thought seeing this was the best part of the trip!9My favorite part was actually the human exhibit. I loved seeing the difference between the male and female skulls.2As well as the skull development progression from birth to child. 3We spent about two hours in the museum, and walked through each exhibit twice. My 8 year old enjoyed it the most, because he could read. However, my 6 and 4 year old had so much to look at, they remained occupied the entire time we were inside as well. The entire building is stroller/wheelchair accessible. We had no issues bringing our stroller along.1 Highly recommend you at least check out the museum, make it an educational trip if you can, my kids reference what we saw there in their school work all the time!6The Skeleton Museum is open 365 days a year from 10AM-10PM Tickets for those over 12 are $19.99, under are $12.99 and children under 3 are free.


  1. My family would get a kick out of this. We love going to museums, and this one has a fun twist on it for Halloween. Plus, it reminds you of that Brendan Fraser comedy movie, ‘Encino Man’, where he plays a Neanderthal.
