Get in touch with the child within as you interact with family and friends in this active space filled with hands-on activities. All of the activities are designed to echo the themes presented in the permanent exhibition area. Below is a sampling of the kinds of things you might do in the Discovery Center:

  • Playful tricksters and regional animals share value rich stories conveying cultural morals and lessons
  • Meet great historic and contemporary leaders while learning about their outstanding attributes that made them such strong leaders
  • Act out or illustrate popular Native American stories
  • Identify original tribal homelands and connect to where the tribe is located in Oklahoma today

  • Enter Native American dwellings and experiment with Native languages

 There is plenty of fun, and a great view of the outdoor landscape.
