Ahead of Science Museum Oklahoma’s 4th Annual Tinkerfest, we’ve rounded up some of the most intriguing, entertaining and iconic activities found at this 390,000-square-foot attraction that should never be overlooked. Take this on your next visit and be sure to share your photos with us on social using #MyAdventureRoad.
The Brontosaurus Replica
Of course the list starts here, this one is hard to miss! Located on the Science Floor, this towering dinosaur model overlooks hundreds of activities and science experiments and makes even the tallest of guests appear tiny.
Fish Friends in the Oceanarium
With more than 40 unique kinds of ocean life, the Oceanarium gives you an up-close look at life under the sea. See if you can spot a clown fish or sea urchin! If you time it just right, you may get to witness a feeding conducted by Oceanarium caretakers.
Big Game Theory
Whether you’re teaching them young or just wanting to take advantage of the nearby seating, this oversized chessboard is a tempting place for kids to play, regardless. As you can see, it’s just as fun to put yourself in the game!
Sand Art Wheels
Popular with big kids and adults to boot, this interactive station offers a great form of sensory play. You could spend hours creating different designs in the sand with the help of tools and a spinning wheel similar to those used in pottery.
A Mighty Mouth
Not only is this area a fun photo op spot, it’s also a great way for little ones to learn all about dental health. The hands-on experiences within these giant jaws explore the science – and importance – of taking care of those pearly whites.
Eye on the Sky
Take a journey through the atmosphere to learn about Oklahoma’s infamous extreme weather. At Eye on the Sky, you’ll get the chance to step into a tornado simulator, play a weather forecaster in the studio, make cloud rings and fog and more.
