“Great place to take the kids or grandkids”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

We took our 6 year old grandson to the Discovery Lab and watched him enjoy it immensely. Both the packing tape tunnel and the peg board/half tube wall that can be arranged to funnel balls in various paths kept him busy for much of the visit. The museum was busy since it is summer time, but the chaos was managed very well by the friendly staff. There are plenty activities to keep a child busy a couple hours at least.

“Loved it!!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We met some friends at the museum - not really knowing what to expect. It was WONDERFUL!! Our kids (ages 2-9) stayed busy for an entire 2 and half hours without stopping and wanted to stay even longer :o) Everything was hands-on, workers were very friendly, and it was very neat and clean. There were things for all ages to do in every room, so we could stay together. It was definitely value-priced and we will be going back again.

A couple of notes: there were no concessions, and there was a playground and splash pad outside the museum (we will take advantage of that on our next visit).

“Great for kids of all ages!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We brought 4 children ages 2-6 to the museum and they loved it! The place is not huge, but many of the exhibits are rotating and will be changed out for variety. From a huge climbing structure made entirely of wood and packing tape, to arts and crafts and a toddler area, the museum can entertain children of a wide age range. Our group stayed for 3 hours, but the kids would have loved to stay all day!

“Cool Fun for Younger Kids - A Bit Expensive”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We enjoyed all the activities and the staff was attentive and helpful. The price of a season pass seemed a bit high for the size of the place. I am probably spoiled because I grew up going to the Exploratorium in San Francisco - which is huge and awesome. If you remember you are in Tulsa and scale your expectations accordingly, you'll have a fine couple of hours here. There's a splash park outside. Bring food or be prepared to go out to eat.
