Science Museum Oklahoma
The Science Museum Oklahoma has more than 350 hands-on science exhibits to see, and if you have little ones (under 6) there is an area with all sorts of hands-on exhibits just for them. The Air and Space museum has one of the most complete collections of this type of memorabilia in the southwest. You can also visit the Planetarium or the Dome Theater, a dome screen theater that surrounds the audience.
We decided to spend sometime at the musuem before a sooners game and we had a blast. My boys are 10 and 13 and had a great time. We bought the movie package as well. Not terribley expensive for what it is...Go to Wichita or another big city and you will pay about 15% more in price....
We were there to visit the zoo actually. It was very cold that day, and the animals would of just stayed in their cages due to being cold. So we decided to check out the OmniPlex. What are you going to do when you have visitors from out of town, well once inside..its like ahhh, OMG! Its expensive. Especially if you want to see the body within. Very high priced in my opinion. We werent expected to pay $175 that day. They didnt have much of a discount for military either, but a $1...If it hadnt been for the weather, I would of just been satisfied with the zoo. They give discounts to the military too.
I dont think it was worth the money. They need to drop the prices more especially since you cant touch nothing in the body within. $30 each for the 8 of us to walk around cabinets...dont think so. I think you'd get more people to visit there, if the prices were more reasonable.
We werent not at all happy that day due to our relatives that came to visit. We couldnt afford it being in the military but having to drive our guests from out of state, we had to go in there to see the exhibit..otherwise, we would of just hung around outside all day or even walked the zoo. TOO MUCH MONEY!
We will not be back to see that place...they could of offered more of a discount to our military.
this place was pretty cool, kept the kids and my hubby busy all day long, they had a blast........though some exhibits were out of order, or not taken care of well, and i think for as much as they charge they can do better at keeping up things such as that, but all in all it was pretty entertaining....
I loved the Omniplex and it is well worth the money. My kids spent a full day there playing, watching both omnidome films, and seeing a planetarium show. It was amazing. The people at the box office were especially nice and helpful. They informed us of everything we needed to know...i believe their names were Heather and April...thank God for them!!
It is a great place for kids. Well, I take that back. It is a great place for the WHOLE family. There is lots of stuff to do and it never gets old. We are waiting for the Tree House that will be there. That will be fun for the kids.
