Leonardo's Children's Museum was founded by Helen Mary Walker Garriott and Owen Garriott. As a result of their enthusiasm, generosity and leadership, a group of visionary community leaders formed the Enid Arts and Science Foundation in September of 1992. Many dedicated volunteers worked together to purchase, design and build an interactive center for children in our community.Plan to see Leonardo's Children's Museum and other attractions that appeal to you using our Enid trip planner.
Leonardo's Children's Museum, named after the famous fifteenth century artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci, began classes in 1994 and celebrated its grand opening in September of 1995. Since then, approximately 70,000 to 80,000 guests have visited every year, making it one of Northwest Oklahoma's most popular destinations.
This great place was built as a hands-on art and science museum, dedicated to enriching and inspiring children of all ages by creating fun learning opportunities. Each day guests come and have the freedom of their creativity to inspire, explore, and become knowledgeable in the field of Arts & Sciences.
We continue to find new and exciting ways to fulfill our mission of "enriching and inspiring children of all ages by creating fun learning opportunities." Leonardo’s Children’s Museum strives to obtain educational tools, workshops, and exhibits that will ignite learnings and creativity in our guests of all ages.
Every six months our museum receives a brand new exhibit that rotates throughout the five Oklahoma museums. Leonardo’s is partnered with The Oklahoma Museum Network funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. This is a state-wide collaboration of five partner museums working together to provide hands-on discovery learning and science resources to families, students and educators across the state.
“Each partner museum in the Oklahoma Museum Network features interactive science exhibits that rotate twice a year, providing unique learning opportunities and new experiences. OMN also provides the very best in teacher inquiry professional development, allowing educators to increase classroom effectiveness across the curriculum.” -- omn.sciencemuseumok.com

This museum is awesome - especially for children 10 years old and under. Our kids had a blast in all the miniature play stations. We drove an hour to visit and were not disappointed. The animals were a pleasant surprise. Our boys got to pet the chinchilla and loved it. Definitely worth a return trip.
We had a great time! We took our 6 month old and although he was too little for most of the museum he loved looking at everything going on. We had a lot of fun and learned some great new things. We will surely be back as our baby gets bigger!
