4. Oklahoma WONDERtorium, Stillwater, OK

Who wouldn’t enjoy going to “a world where play is encouraged and valued?” Children have the chance to milk a cow, gather eggs and take them to the store to sell. They can pretend to be medical staff or climb a tree slide. It’s always an adventure. 

5. Jasmine Moran Children’s Museum, Seminole, OK

Children must be accompanied by adult, but young and old will enjoy the playtime. You can pretend to be an archaeologist, wear a judge’s robe or put out fires as a firefighter inside this wonderland.
