  • Always such a great place to take our little one on a super hot day, rainy day or just something to break our routine up a bit. They change out their interactive room a lot and we always love the choices they make to help kids learn about so many different things (bugs, dinosaurs, etc.) Definitely worth the money and we find something new there everytime. Good job, Lawton!
  • Glad I stopped in for a visit. It is a great museum with interesting and hands-on experience. I really enjoyed the Tornado experience. The folks at the trading outpost replica were very knowledgeable about the history. Very interesting to hear them talk about the place. Worth the stop if you are near.
  • I was surprised at how good this was. It is fun for adults and kids. Lots of unique things and well thought out exhibits. I totally would go again and recommend it to anyone. The Tornado video was especially well done.
  • Wow! This is a really cool museum. We visited with 4 adults and 5 children ages 1-11. We all had a great time. The exhibits are all interactive so all of us had a great time. It's also very educational. I learned a lot about this area But I was most impressed with the quality of each exhibit. They must have some very talented curators. There were so many beautiful and fascinating details. The tornado exhibit was especially moving. I'm really grateful we visited. It is well worth making the trip.
  • Wow! What a gem in Lawton. This is a great place for kids and adults. I went as a late twenties person on my own and loved it. There are tons of interactive exhibits and you really get a feel for how people have lived in this area throughout history. This is a must see for anyone living in or visiting Lawton.
