    Will Rogers Memorial Museum ~Claremore, OK

    Monday, February 19th, 2018

    I really like learning about Will Rogers.

    He had so many qualities to admire.

    I am glad he is part of Oklahoma’s history.

    Doing a scavenger hunt.

    My kids had fun learning more about Will Rogers and pretending to be him in the kid’s area!

    We got a great deal on Groupon!

    Make sure you check for deals before you go!

    Tulsa Air and Space Museum (TASM) ~Tulsa, OK

    Friday, February 16th, 2018

     

    We ended up buying a membership to the Tulsa Air and Space Museum because memberships usually make more sense than paying what it costs for our large family to go once.

    I am glad we did because part of the museum was not open.

    It would have been really annoying if we did not have the option to come back anyway because it is a really small museum so part of it being closed is a bigger deal than if it was a larger one.


    That being said, the staff in the museum were amazing.

    They had so much knowledge and shared it over and over with my kids!

     

    They would just finish explaining something to one set of my kids and then turn around and do the same with next set.

    Sometimes doing the same thing three times.

    And he treated even my littlest like they could do it.

    Although it is a small museum there are several hands-on things to do.

    He helped them to “land” this hot air balloon.

    You stand inside a hot air balloon basket and have to pull the ropes at the right time to land on a bullseye.

    There is a small kids area upstairs.

    This is the look she gets every time I take too many pics of her.

    They have a really nice planetarium also and the show was pretty good.

    They ended up adding some stuff to the show and it got a bit long for some of mine.

    I also get motion sick from those shows.

    Ha

    I am excited about going back when we are studying about the Space Race next month!

    I am actually happy we went before we started our study as well.

    I have found that if you introduce a subject in a fun way before you study it, kids have an easier time learning about it.

    How do you get your kids interested in subjects?

    A birthday and the Sam Noble Museum

    Friday, February 9th, 2018

    For my second oldest birthday, we were heading home from a camping trip but we stopped at the OKC Natural History Museum on the way home.


    I like how hands on the exhibits are.

    As a creationist going to a museum like this could seem like a problem but I don’t mind them hearing both sides.

    We also learn a lot about the creation side.

    You could just go to enjoy the exhibits and not read the boards though if it bothered you.

    The exhibits are still put together really well.

    We are working on teaching our boys to respectfully listen to people even if they disagree with them, so this was a great opportunity for that.

    Less than half of the museum covers prehistoric history.

    The top floor is Oklahoma history and the ecosystems in Oklahoma.

     

     


     

    The murals are all so amazing.

    They are one of my favorite parts.

    Breathtaking.

    Does anyone else have kids that pretty much just jump from one computer to the next?

    This was a perfect stop after staying at Dinosaur Valley State Park!

    And a great stop for our Dinosaur loving boy.

    I am really enjoying going on trips on our kids birthdays!

    So much fun!
