We have limited time in OKC and trying to decide between the zoo and the Cowboy Heritage museum for our last day. Kids are 13 and 10. We are from Dallas and have visited both the Dallas and Fort Worth zoos many times. I went to the Cowboy museum as a kid myself, but barely remember the exhibits and I'm sure it's changed since the 70's. Any local feedback is appreciated.

I would do the zoo. More for children those ages.

You might think about the Science Museum. It's next door to the zoo. We just took our niece and nephew (10 & 13) and they both had a blast.

I would not recommend the Cowboy Museum for kids that age, they might be bored.

I second the science museum/zoo combination. You might also consider riversport adventures in the boathouse area, depending on the thrill level you are looking for. Enjoy your stay.
