Founded in 1958 and spanning more than 8 acres, Science Museum Oklahoma offers an interactive look at a variety of science fields, from engineering to aviation and even art. Start at "CurioCity," a 20,000-square-foot "city" divided into eight neighborhoods. Each neighborhood offers interactive features that teach kids (and adults) about different scientific concepts, such as the distribution of mass and investigation and observation. Among the museum's many exhibits, you'll also find a planetarium, a two-story tree house and a "Tinkering Garage" – a hands-on workshop.

According to recent visitors, the Science Museum Oklahoma appeals to a variety of ages and interests. Reviewers raved about the quality of the museum's exhibits and its friendly staff. Travelers were also impressed with the museum's size, saying it was large enough to accommodate the many exhibits and crowds, but not too overwhelming.

You'll find the museum northeast of the downtown area, accessible off of Interstate 35. General admission, which does not include special exhibits, costs $15.95 for adults ages 13 to 64 and $12.95 for kids 3 to 12. The museum is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Parking is available on-site. Along with its exhibits, the museum also offers a gift shop, as well as a casual cafe selling pizza, hot dogs and hamburgers. For more information, visit the facility's website
