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.

I don't have young kids anymore, but I wish this had been around then. The research and thought into this place is amazing. And they have lots of seasonal and special programs to keep even the locals enthused!

Good variety of activities for young children, under 10 works... but best for 7 and younger. My girls like the pretend play options, water play, and air tubes.

We decided to take a day trip to Stillwater and stopped at this museum for the kids. Fortunately for us, they had a special feature that day with Star Wars characters. Our kids absolutely loved it (as did we)! The museum itself was very cool too and worth the visit. I would allot 2 hours or so to visit.

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
