NOW OPEN! SKELETONS: Animals Unveiled

Under the Wheel @ I-Drive 360 in Orlando, FL

Skulls Unlimited International Inc. is excited to announce its latest venture; Skeletons: Animals Unveiled! This first-of-its-kind museum is located in Orlando Florida, in the middle of the growing tourist district at the I-Drive 360 complex. Skeletons has over 40 exhibits featuring more than 400 real animal skeletons in clever never-before-seen poses and dioramas that brands visitors with a whole new respect for the animal kingdom.


The story behind SKELETONS: ANIMALS UNVEILED

Skeletons: Animals Unveiled!   is a family-owned museum and one of only two skeleton museums in America. Both museums feature the inner framework of hundreds of animals from all over the world.

You may be wondering how a family from Oklahoma came up with the idea to build “America’s Only Skeleton Museum”.

Well, it all started in 1972 when Jay Villemarette, at the age of 7, found a dog skull in the woods. Jay’s parents saw his fascination in the skull, and encouraged him to begin collecting skulls. Jay spent nearly all of his free time scavenging for skulls. He later went on to enter his small collection into his 5th grade science fair. Jay won 1st place!

In 1985, Jay married his wife Kim, who also encouraged his passion for skulls. One year later, they opened their company Skulls Unlimited International with a one-page price list.

25 years later, Jay’s collection continued to grow and included some of the rarest species in the world. He came to realize that his new passion, was to start sharing his collection with people. For seven years, Jay and his four children all worked the company to make this dream come true.

In 2010, America’s only skeleton museum opened in Oklahoma City. Excited about how much visitors enjoyed seeing their vast collection, the family spent the next several years working towards bringing a second museum, “Skeletons: Animals Unveiled” to Orlando!

The Villemarette family and their Skulls Unlimited crew have cleaned and articulated every skeleton on display in this museum. Each skeleton has taken months to prepare, and hundreds of hours to professionally articulate.

Our family has brought this museum to Orlando in hopes to share Jay’s passion for Osteology with other families from all around the world.

"Behind the Thrills" Review of Skeletons: Animals Unveiled

Piles of bones everywhere, and beetles clearing the flesh off of a rotting carcass ... believe it or not ... it's nowhere near as creepy as it sounds. In fact, it's downright entertaining.
