What’s this about a children’s museum?

Amber Nemecek April 11th, 2012

I was not aware that Stage Center is being persuaded to become a children’s museum.

In response to a recent Oklahoma Gazette commentary by Tracey Zeeck (“OKC needs a children’s museum,” March 28), I have to remind Oklahoma City that we already have a children’s museum: Science Museum Oklahoma.

To pretend OKC doesn’t have a children’s museum and then demand another one for the downtown area is ridiculous.

Zeeck implies that OKC does not have a museum where kids can roam around freely and learn. Has she ever stepped inside Science Museum Oklahoma? A gigantic tree house with seesaws and slides are one of the many play areas in that museum, and I’m very confident that section isn’t for adults.

I agree with saving Stage Center, but I would rather have something more creative in the downtown area rather than a repeat of what OKC already offers.

When was the last time you stepped into the Science Museum?  Many of the exibits seem like they haven't been updated since the 60's, and some of the interactive exhibits are actually broken.  Sure it's a museum, but we've learned a lot in the past 50 years.  Maybe the place needs an update.  I'd rather have my kid watch Nova on PBS than waste money on antiqated science.
