    This is another great museum on the Oklahoma Museum Network.

    amusDSC_8333

    It has a giant playground outside.

    They have also expanded since the last time we went!

    They had a workshop area to take apart electronics and build things!

    Little Bit was not happy about taking apart a toy instead of playing with it.

    The boys really liked it though!

    I let Nick supervise the sharp objects…

    Little House on the Prairie Museum ~Independence, KS

    We stopped at the Little House on the Prairie Museum on our way up to see family in Minnesota.

    Laura Ingalls Wilder lived here with her parents when she was a child and it inspired the series of books she later wrote.

    alittleDSC_8705 alittleDSC_8710 alittleDSC_8711

    They have an old post office and school that they moved to the location as well.

    It was really neat to see the cabin that is a replica of the one she lived in.

    alittleDSC_8741

    I am hoping that seeing the spot that inspired the books would help them come to life so I bought these two while there!

    I found it really interesting that in the books they journey from Minnesota to Kansas and we were heading to Minnesota as well!

    Museum of the Great Plains ~Lawton, OK

    Friday, September 22nd, 2017

    We went to the Museum of the Great Plains while camping at the Wichita Wildlife Refuge.

    The first time we went to this museum it was filled with a lot of static exhibits that were not much fun for my kids.

    aamusDSC_5418

    This time was a pleasant surprise.

    aamusDSC_5419

    Almost everything was hands on!

    My kids enjoyed this museum so much and so did I!!!!

    The tornado shelter simulator is terrifying and amazing.

    It really feels like you are waiting out a tornado in a shelter.

    aamusDSC_5427 aamusDSC_5428 aamusDSC_5430 aamusDSC_5432 aamusDSC_5437

    This is how they taught them what the parts of the bison were used for.

    Amazing.

    Everything was set up to let my kids step back in time and imagine.

    aamusDSC_5485 aamusDSC_5490 aamusDSC_5491 aamusDSC_5495

    They are a part of the Oklahoma Museum Network so we got to see something we are familiar with!

    Tape Slides!

    We visit the Tulsa Children’s Museum often so my kids have been playing on their tape slide for a while.

    General Store!

    I grew up watching the Gospel Bill Show so these always make me think of Miss Lana.

    Ha

    They have even more cool stuff outside!

    This was our favorite part on our previous visit.

    aamusDSC_5605

    They have a fort set up outside.

    Daring people.

    Giving my children weapons.

    Lookout tower.

    The enemy looks a lot like a bunny…

    aamusDSC_5667 aamusDSC_5671

    I highly recommend going to this museum!

    Especially if you have kids!

    The best part is if you have an Oklahoma Museum Network membership it includes this museum!

    So no extra cost!
