    On a 2-week road trip and visits to numerous museums and historic sites, this one stood out. The museum pulls you in as the story unfolds. As I sat in the water meeting, I knew the bomb blast was coming, but I still jumped. This is a museum you will feel.

    Do the museum first. After learning the facts, and feeling the story, the outdoor memorial will be more moving. It is a beautiful space with much meaning.

    Having lived in the area for years now, I had only previously been here for a political speaker/dinner and was isolated to the banquet hall. I finally got to see the full facility as a chaperone for a field trip - WOW! My expectations were exceeded!

    The outside gardens are gorgeous with exhibits and art throughout - and inside is an endless trove of interesting exhibits!

    This is a quiet secret in OKC!

    The bricktown water taxi was very educational. It’s a great first stop when visiting Oklahoma City. It was maybe a 30 minute ride. Our tour guide pointed out all the shopping, restaurants, etc that lined the waterway.

    What a fun museum! There is a great collection of skeletons, with just the right amount of educational material, with some fun and humor too. My favorite was the raccoon posed with a box of candy. So accurate! Kids will love this place.

    It’s a bit out of town, but worth the drive.

    Fun, family friendly attraction. Beautiful gardens, inside and out. So much to look at and very well taken care of. The front desk staff was very kind also.

    Not sure I can add much to the hundreds of reviews but since the last one was four months ago, I thought I would write one.
    I loved the zoo. We are huge fans and try to visit a zoo in every city we visit if there is a zoo. This was quite the surprise for us. There were tons of places for kids to stop and play or for families to stop and eat. They have quite a few food options but there are also locations with tables for families to bring a picnic lunch.
    Yes, there was still construction going on and a few exhibits were closed because of it, but we still saw most of the animals. The Red Panda wasn’t out and that was a little disappointing because you don’t see those often. The elephant enclosure was large and we loved seeing the younger elephants. We didn’t stop and linger over exhibits very much and we were there about 3.5 hours, so plan accordingly if you have small children and want to stop at the petting zoo or at the various playgrounds.

    Been there several times. It's a great way to keep the kids busy for 2-4 hours with interactive science activities. Prices are comparable with other science museums nationwide. Come during the holiday season and will get a chance to tour the interior of fully restored 1929 Pullman parlor train car.

    Our family visited the museum on Sat. 3/23/24. We were there primarily to see the 'Raven and box of light" exhibit which was excellent.
    We arranged for a tour (min. 10 people) through the museum and loved the tour. We found the tour very helpful (thanks Tori for the great tour and Destiny for helping us schedule it).
    The museum has a great and very large collection of Chihuly glass which we thought was great.
    There are several other types of glass work exhibits and a good sized painting exhibit area.
    Overall we spent about 3 hours in the museum, including the tour and it was well worth it.
    If you are in OKC this is a must do.

    Admission is free to this museum that tells the story of the 45th Infantry Division Museum & the Oklahoma National Guard. There is an extensive display of military equipment outside the museum in addition to the exhibits inside the museum. The descriptions of the exhibits inside the museum are detailed & easy to read. I'm 66 & I've either been in the army or studied the army my entire adult life & I still learned things here I didn't know. For example, did you know the 45th Infantry Division liberated the Dachau concentration camp in WWII? There was a nice exhibit on that inside the museum. This museum is a must for any Army history buff.

    There are several larger-than-life statues depicting the settlers of the Oklahoma land rush. The statues do a great job of portraying what must have been a hectic rush to get some of the last free land in the United States west. There is no admission cost to see the monument & it is there to look at 24/7. Anyone interested in western history & art need to visit.

    A fine ballpark to catch triple AAA baseball. Was a partial season ticket holder and every game we went to we didn't have any issues.

    Yes food is expensive but this is triple AAA so I would expect to see major league concession prices. If you are taking kids, gets the kids meal it's worth the price and the amount of food you get.

    Not a bad seat in the park from view perspective but several sections down the 1st base side I would avoid because you will be in the direct sun for several innings.

    Ample amount of parking nearby. Just know that Friday/Saturday games the lots will get full with game crowds and others going to the restaurants/clubs nearby.

    On the suite level felt weird having windows in the bathrooms. Hopefully they are one way privacy windows. Lol.

    Again a fine ballpark to catch a game at.

    Came here two see 2 Thunder games at the end of March and it was just the best experience ever (we are Thunder fans so that was definitely a factor haha). The atmosphere was so fantastic and you can tell this city really gets behind their team. So many food options available once you're inside and quite a lot of activities to do before the game too such as photo opportunities and face painting. Plenty of Thunder merchandise both in the Thunder shop and other stalls around. We sat close one game and up in the top section for the other and we enjoyed both, the cheer squads and hype people do a great job at keeping everyone keen
