  • New name and quite a bit of new stuff. More science oriented than previously with lots of hands on things for kids and adults.  more »

  • Our experience started out great right as we walked in the door. The gentlemen working at the entrance were so nice and they told us places in the museum that the kids would love. Of course the kids had a blast everywhere inside the museum. After visiting more than 100 museums in the last 2 years, our kids said this could be the best in the country. In fact we are planning a second visit because it was so awesome. One of my pictures is of my oldest son throwing a fireball at their super fun explosives show!
  • This Museum could use a little help. Over the years several displays remain close I'd like to understand why. Particularly their air and space wing of the museum which I've heard is still not open to the public. But then again there in the middle of Renovations so I can understand other than that little side note I give this Museum four stars it just needs some minor immunity improvements and some newer exhibits. Thankfully it's in the renovation so it looks like that will happen which is good for future visitors!
  • This place was amazing. The woman at the desk to give us our tickets was very pleasant and told us where to go first. I had 3 children with me 4,7, and 12. Each kid was fully entertained. We were there for almost 5 hours. The kids size portioned food at the cafe is good if the kid doesn't eat a lot. My kids do and I should have gotten them adult sized portions. Very large place with much to do. I believe we paid around 59$ for 3 kids and 1 adult. Not a bad price as long as we stayed!
  • We've been twice and we love it! The first time my son was 6 and now he's 12. He had a blast both times! This place is great for kids of all ages. I saw kids from toddlers to teens having fun all day. It's worth it to make the trip. There are just so many things to do and explore! The play areas are big enough for big kids and small enough for little kids too. Everything is so vibrant and really catches your attention. The interactive parts are the best thing about this place. It really makes you use your imagination while teaching you why your brain does what it does.
  • To say this place was disappointing would be a generous compliment. First, there is no mention that this is a children's museum. Second, the interactive exhibits barely explain any science. Many of the exhibits do not have anything explaining what they are, and the ones that do have plaques that are difficult to read. The most interesting exhibit was the old bicycles and only a quarter of them had any information about what time period they were from or who invented them. Science museum Oklahoma is glorified playground.
