Enjoy memory-making experiences and engage children in creative, developmental play at Oklahoma's newest children's museum, the Oklahoma WONDERtorium in Stillwater. The WONDERtorium offers 14 hands-on, interactive exhibits and playscapes plus special activities weekly. The facility provides 10,000 square feet of exhibit space, classrooms and party rooms, office space and a gift shop. The Generation Station Barn exhibit offers kids the opportunity to 'milk' a life-size cow and collect eggs that can then be delivered to the Generation Station Store, a replica 1900s grocery store. Children can also enjoy pure active play sending scarves and foam balls through A-Mazing Airways, splashing in the Water Play exhibit or climbing a wall, sliding down a tree slide and crawling through a fallen log in Forest Playground. The Little WONDERs exhibit offers a play area for grown-ups with children under two to interact together away from the main exhibit floor. Another popular exhibit at the Oklahoma WONDERtorium is My Medical Center, where children engage in dramatic play by dressing up and pretending to be a patient or medical staff. Patients check in with paperwork and can be taken to the doctor's office where they are measured, weighed and tested for good vision. There's a pretend surgery and recovery area, a human body with removable parts, as well as a nursery where life-like babies are cared for. A special unit block area allows children to learn cognitive skills like hand-eye coordination, spacial perception and problem-solving, as well as the Imagination Playground where children are encouraged to create structures from large foam blocks. Ruth Cavins, Executive Director of the museum, said the focus of the WONDERtorium is on children learning through play. Expounding on focus, Cavins continues, "Children's play is important to healthy brain development because it allows them to use their imaginations, solve problems and interact and cooperate with others. Our exhibits are designed to allow children to create and explore a world they can master, discovering self-confidence and the benefits of sharing and negotiating.

A truly interactive learning experience for the young as they learn and have fun and for the young at heart as they see the experience through the youngster's eyes. A wide variety of experiences that change throughout the year. The admission is reasonable.

My grandsons and daughter went here during recent outing to Stillwater. They elected not to sit in 92 degree sun to watch football and went to the Wondertorium. Some concern at first that the displays were oriented to those younger than my 9 and 7 year old grandsons. Proven not the case, as they enjoyed many of the exhibits but... More

This place is well worth the money. Kids love the place and keep coming back because they change their attractions regularly. You can go once a month or more, and never see the same stuff. Your kids will have a ball and you don't have to worry about them.

My family drove 2 hours to visit. The cost is $7 per person., yet adults are only baby sitters. We paid to watch our son play. The museum is extremely small and is not really anything more than an indoor play place. The next time we make that kind of a drive it will be to OKC. It was clean... More

Hi Jennifer, We want to thank you for taking the time to submit a review to TripAdvisor. Our children's museum is priced, and modeled, after most children's museums in the country. With 14 hands-on exhibits, interaction between children and grown-ups is a goal as well as learning together through play. As a 501c(3)non-profit organization, all of our pricing is set... More

This place is small compared to big city attractions but my Grandchildren, ages, 4, 7, and 9 love to go there. There is a hospital for them to put on doctor coats and check out pretend patients. Not sure why but they like to be a patient in a wheel chair or use the crutches. There's an old-time store for... More

If its kept up, it can be a fun few hours. The last few times there was no one manning the craft/paint/ water area, so no materials, very little paint etc....the kids favorite. They drained the water and were in no hurry to fill back up. The stations are great, again, if they are kept up. The kids love the... More

This is a fairly new place for children in Stillwater. Lots of fun things to play with and pretty good variety. After visiting twice in 6 months, my 9 year old had no desire to return. He called it boring. It is geared more for younger children. Adults with children must pay admission which I thought was a little much.... More
