What a great place, with all of the hands on activities your kids will love it. The tornado simulator maybe a bit much for younger children but as for the rest it's a must.

This is one of the best hidden treasures of Lawton. There is so much to play and explore here. My kids could come here repeatedly and not get bored. Everything is hands on, made for children to learn and explore. Comfy chairs are placed throughout which makes it pleasant for parents. Staff was friendly, too!
