“Great place to take the Family!”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

We bought season passes and drove from Tulsa. Love that place. Great for kids, very interesting! Loved going.

There are tons of little things for people to do (as well as kids). Little informative shows to attend, etc. Great place overall!

“Great for kids of all ages...including parents”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

We have a pass for the science museum because my kids love going there. I have an almost-5 yr old and a 1 year old. The (relatively) new children's area is perfect. There is even a place for crawling babies and a spacious changing room for diaper emergencies. Upstairs there is a large area with mats that the kids love running around on (the gymnastics tribute area) and the Science Live shows are impressive. The Pavlov Cafe is surprisingly good for a museum cafe. Their burgers are really really good and they keep the eating area clean (which a mom can appreciate).

“A day is not enough time”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

The exhibits are very much hands-on. The descriptions give the reasons behind the activity and a set of clear instructions. The docents were mostly exceedingly enthusiastic and there were a fair number of them. Bring your own lunch, though. The cafeteria staff was backed up beyond belief and it took close to 40 minutes to get our burgers and fries.

“Great family attraction”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

Great place for families to visit, especially young children. Two stories and main floor is mostly open and HUGE. So much to do that is hands on. Can stay all day and has lots of small areas to visit. Very nice Dome Theater with shows. May run a little long though for smaller children and they may lose interest after awhile. Show we saw was about extreme sports and was interesting. Our two boys, ages 10 and 12, like it but towards the end the younger one was wanting to move on to something else. Right next to the OKC Zoo. Museum has lots of parking. Price isn't too high. Overall, great family spot to visit.

“Awesome for all ages!”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

Our group ranged from 7 to 50 years old and there was truly something for everyone. I only wish we had scheduled more time to be there. Great staff too, all very fun and knowledgeable.
