Permanent Exhibits

Opened to the public on May 1, 2000, the Sam Noble Museum at the University of Oklahoma is one of the finest natural history museums in the world. 50,000 square feet of exhibit space trace over 500 million years of Oklahoma’s natural and cultural history. Founded in 1899, the museum collections include 10 million specimens and artifacts from the life sciences, earth sciences and social sciences and are reflected in the wonderfully rich and informative permanent exhibit galleries.
