“I was very impressed with the museum itself, but blown away by the time Jay and his staff spent with my students. Jay took my students into a classroom after they finished up the scavenger hunt and went over each question with them. He also took the time to answer the many questions from the students, adults and teacher. It was one of the best experiences and trips that I have shared with my students. I cannot wait to go back and take my young son”

– T. Spangler, Bristow, OK

“This is the best staycation place in the world I brought my 3-year old granddaughter and we both had a blast, she went up and down the stairs and around and around both floors over and over and over .... and wanted to go back the next day We shall be returning quite often Thank you for being so kid-friendly, too Not many places will let children roam free without dogging them constantly You are fantabulous.”

– K. Maloy, Norman, OK

“I will admit, when we drove up, I wasn t quite sure what to expect. But then, we walked in the front door and I was simply amazed. It has been a couple of weeks later and my family still talks about it. My 15 year old daughter now wants to become an osteologist. To top it off, many museums are all about the money. Here, we find a great museum that has low entry fees and even lets you take pictures You even gave us a military discount We will be back.”
