We were invited to explore the Museum of Osteology and showcase the Icon Orlando 360 property. All opinions are of my own. We highly recommend a visit to tour the area and the skeletons.
Just days ago we were invited to explore Icon Orlando Skeletons the Museum of Osteology. This was our first time exploring Icon Orlando 360 and the Museum; why haven’t we been here before?! I was blown away by how large this area truly is! I assumed just the Orlando Eye and Orlando StarFlyer were the only things in that area. WOW, we were wrong, not only is there a variety of places to explore, eat, and even relax at there is an epic Skeletons museum that my boys loved! If you’re a local, Floridian planning to travel to Orlando soon, or vacationing in the Orlando Florida area you must make a visit to this area. Let’s dive on in to the details so you can get your travel plans finalized.
So, if you’re anything like us both of these scenic rides are NOPE in your book. I don’t mind heights but when it’s a slow moving process I’m not interested. I have a handful of friends who have experienced the Orlando Eye and loved it though. When you begin your Orlando based fun filled days plans consider these rides if you’re braver than I.
Once you’re done exploring Orlando through the eye it’s time for the SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology! There are has a variety of attractions and dining options, but be sure to add this museum to your must list. We explored the museum in about 30-40 minutes with 2 toddlers in hand (which is amazing!), but would LOVE to go back on a date night to truly take our time strolling through the bones. It was so fascinating! The Museum of Osteology items are donated and each item has a story to tell… in our opinion.
Exploring Icon Orlando Skeletons Museum of Osteology
The boys (ages 3 and 1) enjoyed the bats, the small kids play area, and the large animal skeletons most of all. The husband kept gravitating to the donated human skeletons while I liked the teeny tiny skeletons. Our oldest really got into the scavenger hunt too! They offer 3 different levels of skeleton scavenger hunts and we almost got a perfect score. When you pay for a day you can come back as many times as you want! Stroll through the skeletons, grab a bite to eat or visit another attraction, then head back in for a little scavenger hunt.
We decided to picnic on the hub grass like area and it was a perfect picnic spot! The boys took their shoes off and ran around the wide open area. This space is ideal for a picnic style lunch, sitting down to relax, and for epic photo taking. After lunch we headed back into the museum to let the kids look in the gift shop. The boys wanted one of everything, of course. wink
We’ve decided to visit the area again next month for a date night! Yep, we enjoyed it that much.
If you’re local, a Florida based gal, or visiting the area soon be sure to pin the image below to bookmark all the details I’ve shared for your upcoming visit. Thank you to Icon Orlando 360 and to the SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology for having our family explore your fun area!
Fun Fact: The Orlando Eye is the previous name for ICON Orlando, but the word eye caught on quickly in central Florida that we use it interchangeably. Term it what you wish, friends.
