    This museum has something for everyone. Lots of hands-on activities to complement the wealth of information here. Well worth the low admission fee; I would recommend to anyone passing through or anyone who lives in the area. Keep up the great work!

    This is a GREAT place to bring the family. Excellent hands on learning experiences in science, engineering and art as well as local and Oklahoma history. The entry fee is reasonable and the staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

    Very well done museum. Lots of neat exhibits that are fun for adults and kids. My favorites were the tornado room and giant map at the beginning. Lots of fun activities for kids that even the adults in our group enjoyed!

    Lawton is fortunate to have this Museum. Enough hands on activities for kids, enough educational qualities to satisfy parents. Kids can pretend to be pioneers coming to the plains, run a general store, operate a printing press, and many more options. There is an upstairs area dedicated to science and creative activities. Annual family passes are available.

    The tornado exhibit was very well done. It was our first trip but not our last. The staff was nice and there were many hands on exhibits
