Here is a review from an user.
In honor of the U.S.S. Oklahoma. A Battleship sunk at Pearl Harbor. The park that it is in is appropriate for the monument. Parking is a little difficult to find but is available for free. There isn't much to see but the history of how this great anchor found it's home here is cool to learn about.
Interesting history. Amazing man!
I've been Scouting here with my son, who has Autism, for several years now. The group has welcomed him so much that I was even asked by another BSA group to come speak with their leaders about having other kids on the spectrum in their activities. My son and I have been welcomed with open and understanding arms. The motto "Do Your Best" is absolute with all these men and women who have volunteered to make this a great program. I totally committed to this activity with my son and look forward to getting my other children and daughters involved.
$5 per rider and so much fun! The operator is extremely kind, he added to experience by being so friendly. Highly recommend. Also its fast lol
Christmas trees, too! 🌲
Sad place to visit, but we wanted to pay our respects to those who were lost here. The grounds are beautiful considering what happened here, the reflecting pond relaxes your tension with gentle draining water sounds as you stroll around reading posted signs telling you what everything symbolizes. Didn't have a chance this time to visit the museum but I'm sure it's comforting to those who lived through this terrible event. Prayers to all.
Cracks open your heart and brain. Fascinating and well laid out and explained. We walked around reading almost everything, from the Hitler stuff and Dachau (hold your heart) to the dioramas a soldier made commemorating events, plus 3 highly artistic statues I loved, although their setting by a vent and a fire extinguisher was amusing yet fitting. Very friendly staff there who answered a couple questions we had. It's free but we emptied our wallets for the donation box because we're so grateful for such places that remind and teach us.
We took the architecture bike tour. It was really fantastic! Ryan, was our guide. As an architect by trade, he was more than qualified to lead the trip. He was so knowledgeable about architecture, art, Oklahoma history, foodie options, and so much more. The length of the trip was about 7 miles, which was about perfect. Bikes were great. Easy to operate, smooth shifting. We all felt safe. Totally worth the money. Highly recommend to everyone.
Nice little beach area here. Great for fishing! Really good view from here too.
You can rent this portion of the garden for private gatherings. My friend got married at this pergola. It was a beautiful yet simple location.
I really liked it. It's huge. We walked around and looked at the exhibits and the pictures on the wall. There are several displays. They are very well done. I highly recommend going. We stayed several hours in the museum.
I took my year old foster son here and would have gotten much more out of the experience had he been willing to take more time so we could read the accompanying information in each exhibit. The collection is amazing in its size and a lot of thought has been put into the design of each exhibit. I hope to return some day with my physical therapist wife who I know will want to spend hours digesting all the information presented.
I have never seen so much statue in one place in all my life! Jaw dropping really. This is an amazing site to visit, gorgeous scenery, and a nice walk from anywhere around Bricktown. I highly recommend seeing this as a tourist or a local. Such an important monument and completed way above any expectation I could have had.
After visiting the very moving OKC Memorial, and exiting at the 9. gate resembling the time after the bomb, it's logical to enter and visit this Catholic Church. It's a classic brick one, but with very nice stained glass inside. While visiting the Memorial, be sure and stop in to see this beautiful Church. The stained glass and stations of the cross are amazing. I also loved seeing the Saint Michael the Archangel statue. We attended Mass and the music was amazing! This is a beautiful old cathedral in downtown Oklahoma City with typically ornate decorations. The music is abundant and the pews are a lot more comfortable than you would expect from such and old church. Great experience.
Really great little museum. We spent a couple hours there. Lots to read about the women pilots. It's great for adults. I think kids would get bored because there aren't interactive exhibits. My favorite things were all the headlines and write-ups from the old newspapers. The pilot who kept landing in cow pastures was a hoot too.
Very kind couple with a great story and lots of knowledge about wine! The tasting is a fun experience and the wine is delicious! Ended up bringing home our top 3 but honestly enjoyed all of the tastings!
☆GREETINGS FROM OKC☆ ° ☆Leslie and I found this mural during our exploration! The mural was created by Greetings Tour downtown OKC!We had fun there! The place is surrounded by murals! August , 》OKLAHOMA CITY.OK《
Great place to walk around and be outside. Several trails to get out and about. Not animal friendly. But has all kinds of birds, including ducks and Canadien geese. Fun little park for the little ones. Some of the old walnut trees have been damaged throughout the years but amazingly still alive. Worth a visit!
It was for a kids activity on new years eve, was my first time there. The event was ok didn't have much extra to o for the kids but story time, dance party and a balloon drop. After that we went through the museum, love the top floor with the blown glass art.
Epic science museum! Tons of stuff for the kids to do and funny stuff to answer questions. If you have kids and are looking for hours of fun to keep them entertained, this is the spot! Best part is if you have an Exploration place membership (Wichita Kansas), Union station membership (Kansas City). This is free for you and your baby's! I'll definitely give this five stars for both kids and adults! We were there for two hours and only seen about a third of the place. Trust me when I say it's an all day type thing.
