This is the first natural history museum I have visited since I was a child and loved it! Just wish we had had more time to visit all the galleries.

Young ones will delight in the dinosaurs and adults will be amazed at the dinosaurs and the interesting displays. Upstairs it's all about bugs. A nice museum to visit over and over.

A highlight visit to Oklahoma! The museum contains a wonderful depiction of Oklahoma's nature and life through the eons. There are artifacts, beautiful dioramas and descriptions to supplement the presentations. There are many "hands on" displays for the children to experience.

My grandchildren (3 & 4) love to go to the dinosaur museum. It's on their monthly routine, so much so that my daughter bought a yearly pass for them. They've invited me to join them on several occasions. Truly a treat.

It will be interesting to you and will get you out of the house, the one year old will probably enjoy it but not really understand what's going on.
