The Museum of Osteology
The Museum of Osteology is a privately-owned museum located in Oklahoma City dedicated to the sharing information about the study of bones and skeletons. The museum features nearly 300 different skeletons from different species of animals, thanks to the donation of the private collection of founder Jay Villemarette. The museum contains the largest private collection of osteological specimens in the world.
Backstory and Context
After graduating high school, Jay began processing and selling skulls from home. Then, in 1990, he opened the first retail branch of Skulls Unlimited. With the success of his business, he was able to build the addition that would become the museum in 2010.
