Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium
Located by the Tulsa International Airport in an airplane hangar built in 1940, this facility features displays of actual aircraft and a variety of hands-on activities. Educational for the whole family, the Air and Space Museum emphasizes Tulsa's history in aerospace. In fact, nearly all of the aircraft on display have a historical significance to Tulsa. Over 14,000 square feet of space are utilized to make this a must-see for history buffs and aviation enthusiasts as well as for children.

This place was very small and not much to look at. You can get through the entire museum in about 30 minutes and that is being generous. Would not recommend. The planetarium was the best part. Definately not worth the drive from Oklahoma City.
Unless you are into aviation or have children don't waste your time or money. We were so disappointed in this museum. I don't think they could make a movie out of this museum (Speaking of 'Night at the Museum"). There would be no plot and the actors would only have a one liner, "The plane, the plane". You could look in a cock pit and see a space shuttle lift off for about 30 sec. We were there maybe 15 mins. But hay what do I know your kids may love it.
I was far more interested in the TASM once I arrived. My goal was meerly to expose my children to such a place but after we arrived I found it to be a very cool place, interesting and historical. They had elderly volunteers that used to be pilots either commercial or for the military that told us stories and helped the kids on the simulators which made it exciting. The price included a "movie" at the Planetarium next door. It was a little boring for the kids but there are several shows to pick from. TASM doesnt look that big upon arrival, but we spent as much time inside as we did at the zoo. It was really fun.
