Sam Noble Natural History Museum

The Sam Noble Natural History Museum is on the campus of Oklahoma University, in the nearby town of Norman.  I didn’t know about it and would have missed it, but the security guard who kicked me out of the Walmart told me about it as we were chatting.  🙂

Some photos from a visit.
