Established in 1958 as the Oklahoma Science and Arts Foundation, the Science Museum Oklahoma, has sought to improve the level of appreciation of science which would, in turn, increase both the cultural and educational standards in Oklahoma City. Situated in downtown Oklahoma City in Oklahoma, the Science Museum Oklahoma is a favorite destination for families visiting the city for vacation. With so much to do and so many things to see in the Science Museum Oklahoma, you and your family will always find something new to see here. One of the all-time favorites of children visiting the Science Museum Oklahoma with their families is the Bright Night events held at the museum after the sun goes down. Children can get to enjoy learning science through a host of different fun filled activities ranging from creating green monster slime and creepy fogs to cracking a case just like the detectives do on television and building rocket ships and launching them at designated areas of the museum. The Science Museum Oklahoma also has a number of different exhibits that children, and adults, can interact and take part of. The planetarium located inside the museum features a variety of different shows scheduled to teach children the wonders of space through a fun-filled and interesting story line with lovable characters. Apart from the many exhibits and live shows that are held daily at the Science Museum Oklahoma, the museum has also become a popular children's birthday venue. For two whole hours, children are entertained by the staff of the museum by incorporating fun filled science activities during the entire party.
