Family Activities

Family fun abounds in Oklahoma, and it comes in many forms. From hands on museums designed especially for children to top-rated zoos, there are plenty of family-friendly attractions and activities. Inspire your kids' love of learning at hands on attractions such as Science Museum Oklahoma, Jasmine Moran Children's Museum and Leonardo's Discovery Warehouse. And learn about the world's wildlife at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Tulsa Zoo - both have been named among the top zoos in the nation for families.

If thrills are your style, ride the roller coasters at an amusement park and speed down the slides at a water park. Try rock climbing lessons for the whole family inside at Rocktown Climbing Gym in Oklahoma City or get outdoors and boulder hop at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Young and old can also experience the adrenaline rush and magnificent views of parasailing at Sail Grand on Grand Lake O' the Cherokees.

Discover prehistoric dinosaur giants, wander through a cornfield maze, frolic on a farm or race each other around a go-kart track. Choose from a myriad of fun-filled festivals with kid-friendly activities across the state. There's so much for your family to experience together in Oklahoma!
