Well organized exhibits - interesting OK history!
I loved learning about the Bison and ancient history of the Oklahoma area. I thought all the displays were very well organized. My only regret is that my boys were not with me to play with the STEM exhibits and learn about this part of history.

Engaging Museum .... Well Worth the Visit
2021年8月 • 夫妻情侣
Very investing museum established in 1960 that has evolved with time.

The museum has several engaging hands-on exhibits.

* Most innovative was a 3D sand table that dynamically sensed sand contours (i.e. sand above the table) and projected contour lines and color-coded "elevation" map on the sand. Innovative introduction / visualization appropriate for all ages.

* Hands on exhibit of a mechanical wind mill (for example used to pump water from a well).

* Hands on exhibit of a wind turbine for converting wind to electrical energy. Encourages experimentation with different blade shapes and number of blades to maximize energy conversion.

Many other educational exhibits about the Great Plains (1) Geography (2) People and (3) History.

impressive educational interactive museum for all ages
I'm from Chicago so hadn't expected much from Museum of the Great Plains, but I was quite impressed. I found a very large amount of interactive, educational exhibits for children and many informative exhibits for adults. Indoors, I enjoyed the exhibits on buffalo, journalism, trade, and farming on the plains. The biographies of historical figures were educational. The tornado simulation and film were well done. I didn't have time to see the regularly programmed films in the museum's mini-theater. Outdoors, the guide in the log cabin meticulously described everyday items and details of life that we take for granted. The prairie dog town outside was a new sight for me, too. I'd planned for an hour visit, stayed about two hours, and could have stayed longer.

Small museum with hours of fun!
2021年6月 • 家庭
This small and low cost museum has so much for a family. The exhibits are laid out for learning with brief reading along with hands-on everywhere. Upstairs is pure STEM and crafting with hours of play. Downstairs, there is a leather making shop, a huge general store with play area, and even a printing press.
There are lots of sitting areas around the wall for when grown-ups want to sit back and watch or rest. There is also a full auditorium with full-length documentaries playing all day. Bring grandma to see the fun and give her a place to sit while the kids keep going - because they won’t be ready to leave.
My kids would have stayed for hours. We will be back!

Surprise great stop
2021年6月 • 家庭
Great stop on a long vacation with my daughter. Lots of indoor kids activities and stuff for her to play with, possibly even learning something. About tornadoes, bison, native Americans, early European settlers... And just regular science and engineering style toys. She voted to stay here for a second hour vice go to the aquarium in medicine park. So she really enjoyed it

For adults looking for something to do - it would be a good short stop but you won't need long to cover the adult stuff.

This place is better than Houston Children's museum!
2020年9月 • 家庭
We have a 5yr old, 10 yr old, 16 yr old, and a 17 yr old. We all loved every second at this place inside and outside exhibits. This place is a must see! GO OUT OF YOUR WAY TO GET HERE!! The tornado stimulator is shocking and heart breaking at the same time. So many interactive things to do and learn from! I absolutely loved the gentleman at the trading post! So much awesome information! If you love history this will be your favorite part! It feels so good to hear some one talk about what they love. It really brings it to life!

Great for kids!
2020年2月 • 夫妻情侣
As an educator, I kept looking at the exhibits and thinking how great it would be to take a field trip. I did have my elderly mom with me and she was unable to walk the outside area. However, there were wheelchairs available for use and lots of seating. Really neat museum!

An Unexpected Pleasure
I was unfamiliar with Lawton, Oklahoma - having arrived to attend a grandson's graduation from basic training at Fort Sill. We "discovered" the Museum of the Great Plains by searching for "Highlights of Lawton" - and a highlight it certainly is. I was unaware that this is advertised as a "children's museum" - I found it a fascinating journey through time and location, with many interesting and interactive exhibits. If I lived nearby, it would be the first stop on a tour for visiting friends and family. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Did I mention the Prairie Dogs? They're right outside the front door.
