Discovery Packs, available whenever the Museum is open. Grab a Discovery Pack to enjoy hands-on activities in the galleries with your little ones. With two packs available, Ages 2-5 and Ages 6+, Discovery Packs are the perfect way to keep kids occupied and engaged while visiting the Museum. These choose-your-own-adventure style packs allow you to pick and choose your path through the Museum. The packs are free with admission, just return them to the Admissions Desk when you leave!

Portrait Drawing Corner, available whenever the Museum is open. Sponsored by Wells Fargo, the second floor Portrait Drawing Corner is a comfy space to sit and sketch. Follow the instructions to draw a self-portrait with the mirrors provided or to sketch a friend visiting with you.

This come-and-go art-making opportunity is free with admission and open to all ages. Don’t forget to share your creations with us using #okcmoa!

Make a day of it! Start the day off parking in the Arts District Parking Garage just a block away from the Museum. Visit our friends at Clarity Coffee (located on the bottom floor of the garage) to get your caffeine fix on your way to the Museum. Spring break week, we are open Wednesday-Saturday, 10 am-5 pm, Thursday 10 am-9 pm, and Sunday noon-5 pm. Admission is $12 for adults with discounts available for seniors, students, military, and children under 18. Children 5 and under are free! Add an extra adventure to your time in the Museum’s galleries with a Discovery Pack. Enjoy an intimate lunch in the recently remodeled Museum Cafe. For some afternoon fresh air, hop on the street car to visit the Myriad Botanical Gardens or Scissortail Park. Both feature excellent children’s playgrounds and are easily walkable from the Museum when the weather is nice. Head back to the parking garage with tired kids and lots of great memories.

We hope to see you in March!
