Oklahoma Travel: Science Museum Oklahoma

Every summer, our church runs a program called Tuesdays Out, which is similar to a Mother’s Day Out. The children (elementary-aged) are dropped off and they do a variety of activities or go on a field trip. The last Tuesday Out of each summer is usually an out-of-town day trip. This year, we went to Science Museum Oklahoma in Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma Science Museum is one of our favorite places to go in our capital city. My mom traveled with us this year and we had a great day of fun and exploration! There are tons of interactive exhibits, play areas, a planetarium, and live science demonstrations. Check out our photos to see what we love to do at this wonderful place.


We take this shot every time we go!
Fun water play section
The tornado simulator.  As you can see, my youngest loves it.  Haha
This area is all about movement.  There are gymnastic beams and mats, a little climbing wall, and a track for the kids to race.
Checking out the pilot’s seat
A fun tilting marble maze
Walking the tightrope–he was so good at it!
This slingshot game is one of the boys’ favorite attractions.


Science Museum Oklahoma is located right next to the Oklahoma City Zoo, which we also love to visit.  If you were planning on visiting both on the same day, I would suggest hitting the zoo in the morning for 3 hours or so and then heading over to the science museum for lunch and to play for the rest of the afternoon.
