Where are we going today?
Fun Science Fact! Did you know there is a place where you can play with sounds, explore the stars and space, get hands on with lights and have an amazingly fun time?
Well there is! Science Museum Oklahoma is home to more than 350 hands-on science exhibits and educational programs yet it feels like spending the day in a giant playground.
The insanely fun science floor explores how science really affects our everyday lives. How do airplane wings really work? How does a magnifying glass really focus? There is also a giant computer-controlled segway course where kids can learn about balance control and zoom around using a giant joystick!
Fancy boldly going where lots of kids have gone before? Destination Space takes astronauts in training and allows them to explore from the moon to outer space. There is also a great collection of artifacts actually used in NASA’s space program. You can even blast off in a simulated mission where you can see if you have what it takes!
For those really little scientists, “Kid Space” is a fun, secure and engaging area where all their senses will open up. There is a great range of activities such as putting on an entertaining puppet show, paint their face all weird and wonderful colors, and even create beautiful bubbles.
There are so many more elements to the museum so you will just have to go and discover them for yourself...!

The museum offers great summer camps which allow kids to learn and create using science, from creating snow to levitating objects. They also offer school visits and they make it very easy to reserve a place and help with any questions..
You can only eat if you can tell us the molecular structure of the food....kidding! If you want to bring your own lunch or snacks then by all means. If you have a last minute change of heart on that peanut butter and jelly sandwich, then head to Pavlov’s Cafe in the museum which offer a variety of foods like burgers, salads and sandwiches. Don’t forget to ask about the specials! .
Any Top Tips?
If you buy a general admission ticket, it is valid for two consecutive days. Also make sure you check out the calendar of events to make sure you don’t miss any great exhibitions or events!.
Need a little extra help?
If you have a valid ID, then the center has strollers and wheelchairs there for your use at no extra cost. Just ask one of the lovely staff members when you arrive. .
A private nursing room is available in the exhibition complete with a baby changing station and rocking chairs. You can also keep an eye on your other little rocket makers on the live video monitors located in the room. .

I loved it, and nothing against the comment before, but personally I came for the exhibits and experience my child would have and things they would learn, NOT the cafeteria. It is the SCIENCE MUSEUM of OKLAHOMA, not the CAFETERIA of OKLAHOMA.

Cafeteria workers didn't wear gloves and wiped hands on clothes without rewashing them. I also noticed hairnets were not being used. It seemed like the staff seemed relaxed about not having to either and even defended their actions. We also waited over 30 minutes to be addressed by a manager. Will not recommend and will not return. If you do go avoid the cafeteria.

A great place for all ages. I've been coming here for over 20 years (back in the Omniplex days). My only critique is that there's a disturbing lack of exhibits on evolution and climate change, which are both highly scientific and critically important. If I just failed to see those exhibits on my visits, then please ignore this post. Given that the museum's funding is no doubt closely linked to big oil/gas and fundamentalist Christian donors, I can see the reason for the museum's censorship. I am not judging anyone... just making an observation.
