We decided to go to this museum while visiting friends in Tulsa. My son enjoyed the flight simulator on the second floor and the interactive experiment on the first floor. A man wearing a USS Chicago (I believe) hat, was very helpful and informative in his storytelling. He gave us some extremely interesting background information regarding two planes at the... More

We called in as we read about it. What a great place and the staff were amazing. They all went out of their way and showed us around and explained the exhibits. We wanted to see in the American Airlines plane outside, however it was closed. Just as we were leaving the curator came out and said as we were... More

We loved the "Stars" movie at the planetarium. The seating was very comfortable. However, going as a couple, the air and space museum was boring.

This place is full of interactive exhibits, like a flight simulator. The planetarium is pretty neat.

The Planetarium Rocks! The show is led by instructor who give general star and plant info.Then the movie portion. Smiles all around. The planes you can sit in and touch which is a blast for the kids. There were interactive exhibits. Our grandson loved the simulator which moves the f16 in the wind tunnel the way you fly. Upstairs was... More

While the Air and Space Museum had a lot of numbered exhibits, the one sheet guide didn't really explain what you were looking at. Also, there were a lot of interactive exhibits which were not available unless a staff member was present, but there were no staff members present! Would have liked to have been able to do and learn... More

I lived in Tulsa for years and always heard about this museum, never paying it a visit until my wife's company held an event here. Wow. Chronicling Tulsa's rich aeronautical history, there is a lot to tell. Two stories of exhibits with several actual airplanes hanging suspended from the ceiling. Enough to keep you interested and busy for some time.... More

Located near the Tulsa airport and Mohawk Park, this attraction is a must for aircraft/space exploration enthusiasts and astronomy buff's. Main museum has a varied array of aircraft (vintage and modern) and exhibits on space exploration. Many of the exhibits highlight the role of Tulsa and Tulsa inhabitants in aviation history. A number of interactive exhibits will keep youngsters and... More

Interesting history of Tulsa's role in aviation, with exhibits of a few military aircraft, engines, and other aircraft. While admission includes a planetarium show, the last show was at noon (I arrived a bit after 1 pm).

My kids (7 and 9) loved this place. You can sit in the airplanes and flight simulator and push the button to launch a rocket. Nice displays of old uniforms start conversations with kiddos. Upstairs you'll find a series of hands on activities to experiment with different aspects of physics. Volunteers are friendly and knowledgable. Unlike most museums you do... More
