how can you preserve an owl's skull?

my boyfriend found an owl on the side of the road and wants to keep its skull. any helpful info on how to get all of the flesh out?

i know you can boil it and pick the skin off but what about its insides like its brain and stuff?

    You will have to keep boiling and take something and stick inside the brain cavity and keep working at it until you get all the flesh and brain out.Then you will want to put the skull in a bleach water solution.You might have to do this a couple of times to get the look you want.You should check with the laws in your area to see if you can get some sort of a tag or permit to obtain the carcas. Good luck.
