Enjoy memory-making experiences and engage children in creative,...

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.

The WONDERtorium is a great place to bring your children to play, interact with other children and to have some fun! It's a great place for a play-date when the weathers too hot, too cold, or too wet, or you just don't want to make a mess at your house! There's a great diversity of activities from role playing at... More

The trip was fun. But not many things to do with young children. I wish there were more for young children.

We took our toddler here twice in one week and she loved it. There are lots of things to do, many of which are related to Midwest culture. (e.g., milk fake cow, pick fake crops, collect fake eggs, sit in saddle, etc.) There's also a few play areas related to Stillwater's sister city in Japan. The place is geared toward... More

Exploration and discovery for children of all ages! A variety of experiences to engage everyone! The staff is very knowledgeable and programs are very appropriate and designed to encourage creativity and thinking! The only challenge- it is very popular and can be crowded on weekends and holidays!

My kids had a great time here learning about so many things! They didn't want to leave when it was time to go! You can spend anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours or more!

I hadn't heard anything about Oklahoma Wondertorium before we visited so I had no expectations. It was a wonderful place to play! All 3 of my kids (ages 8, 5, 1.5) had such a fun day! Every area encouraged a different type of imaginative play.

Great place to take your children to play and learn or rent it out for a party. There is a room for small toddlers or let your kids run wild in the big room. Activities always seem to be changing and they have events. Highly recommended!

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.
