  • It had been ages since I was last in the museum and it didn't disappoint. Very interesting and educational afternoon. I highly recommend it and bring the kids because there are a lot of exhibits for them to interact with.
  • Could not recommend this museum more highly. Hands-on, recently renovated, amazing stuff, best 4D exhibit I have ever seen in my life, bug exhibit... It was so much fun. Plan to spend the whole day there. You get to rope a wooden steer! Best day ever.
  • 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. Nearly every exhibit and hands on activity is ADA accessible. The only one that wasn't when we visited was a traveling exhibit.
  • This is a great museum that is very hands on and informative. Great for kids to learn and take home a few things that they create themselves. The train in their outdoor exhibit is really neat to see! Just be careful with the wasps that are outside. We did get stung because we were not aware of our surroundings.
  • Such a beautiful renovated space! Thank you so much to the museum for hosting the 2017 OMA conference after hours dinner. The interractive exhibits and hands on learning in this place is amazing! Very kid friendly and great for every type of learner!
