  • This place was fantastic. When we knew we were going to be in OKC, this was our number one family destination choice and it didn't disappoint. All of our kids, from the four year old to the fifteen year old loved it and found things to grab their interest and attention. The displays are exceptional and well marked with descriptions. We spent about two hours and definitely didn't take it all in fully. Definitely recommend!!!
  • I took my 12 year old foster son here and would have gotten much more out of the experience had he been willing to take more time so we could read the accompanying information in each exhibit. The collection is amazing in its size and a lot of thought has been put into the design of each exhibit. I hope to return some day with my physical therapist wife who I know will want to spend hours digesting all the information presented.
