WELCOME TO DISCOVERY LAB
An electric lime green ceiling, science demos, The WorkShop, a labyrinth of tunnels and a slide made from packing tape, and more. This is Discovery Lab, a place where kids and their families can make, play, and design things using “real” stuff in new and different ways. Inspired by the best practices in children’s museum design, Discovery Lab offers an environment where fun and education meet “hands-on.” Multidisciplinary experiences and exhibits are designed to encourage process skill development and support current classroom curricula with Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) content.
Discovery Lab is located just northwest of downtown Tulsa in historic Owen Park and is a member of the Oklahoma Museum Network, the Oklahoma Museum Association, the Association of Children’s Museums, the American Alliance of Museums, and Arts Alliance Tulsa.
