There is so much to look at.If you are military -from memorial day to labor day-you and your family get in free. Any other time its discount price.That was a awesome treat! This was definitely worth the trip to... More

Knowledgeable docents will guide you through this wonderful facility if you wish. Individuals can also explore on their own. This is a terrific collection of Ancient Life and Natural History with visiting collections often thrown into the mix. Really good museum store.

Nice display of natural history of Oklahoma, including many dinosaurs from local digs. We also enjoyed the special exhibit about what people eat from around the world, that had photographs of families with all their food for a week. Very eye-opening and interesting!

Beautiful and well-organized, this museum has something for everyone. There are dinosaurs, animals, Oklahoma history and native Americans. The gift shop has a nice selection of items.

This is a great, educational fun place for families. There is art, dinosaurs and other great exhibits to see. There is a children's room to discover more hands on activities. We have done some of the camps and always enjoy ourselves.

The fees ranging from $5 adults to $3 children were reasonable. (Free 1st Monday of each month) It is so easy to go through a typical museum, reading signs but not absorbing the information. Get touchy-feely to get the most out of these exhibits, but I thought the museum excelled in offering understandable explanations. I'll never forget touching a bison... More

There are quite a few things to look at, but you can easily get through it in an hour, hour and a half. I believe it is free on Mondays, which makes it really worth it, especially if your kids love dinosaurs. I took my son on his birthday one year, and he loved it, but I will certainly not... More

We enjoyed this musuem but felt that it was more appopriate for families with children. They are very elaborate in detial and it is a great place for kids to learn. We also really enjoyed their hungry earth exhibit. It causes much thought and conversation. It is a bit small though for the price...

This is a modern design museum with excellent display and plenty of hands-on for kids. The building is spacious, the exhibits are excellent (we loved the dinos) and the staff are the friendliest ever!

We were looking for something inexpensive to appeal to family members from toddler to children to teens and adults...and this fit the bill! Giant dinosaurs, hands-on activities, Indian artifacts, nature and animals, a Discovery Room just for kids...and a glass elevator from which you can see the dinosaur eye-to-eye!
