After visiting the Capital we headed over to the Oklahoma History Center.
When I went up to pay for admission to the museum I was told that since it was Monday students were free. That meant that the boys were free and she also thought I was a student but I told her I wasn’t and she said that I look like one. We got stickers to show that we already paid and then we went straight upstairs to the Winnie Mae Cafe. The cafe is open and it is set up really cute; they did a great job with the theme and I can’t believe that I didn’t take more pictures.
This is a walk up and order cafe and they mostly have sandwiches and wraps. There were a few people in front of me and I heard them order the Blended Grilled Cheese Heaven and so I thought that sounds good so that’s what I ordered along with a cup of Creamy Tomato Basil Soup. The grilled cheese was a blend of asiago, cheddar, swiss, and pepper jack cheese. I thought it was really good. I also enjoyed the soup.
The boys got a kid’s grilled cheese. I think it was a blend of cheddar and swiss. I didn’t take a picture of their grilled cheese but here’s a picture of them waiting for the food.
Once we finished eating we headed to the exhibits. What I loved about this museum was the please touch areas.
All of the above was from the first exhibit that we went in. The boys took a picture with Winnie Mae the plane and a car before heading downstairs to the next exhibit.
The next exhibit we went into was the Native American exhibit. I don’t have a lot of pictures and most of them are really pretty blurry but I will put a few anyways.
This next exhibit was called Oklahoma @ the Movies. Once again I’ve got a lot of blurry pictures :(. Flash photography is not allowed in the museum so sometimes I get blurry pictures inside.
Once we were done with that exhibit we looked at the Space exhibit and the Crumbo Spirit Talk exhibit but I didn’t take any pictures. After that we went to the gift shop and then out to the sculptures outside. I wish we had done the sculptures outside before we went in because at that point it was still cloudy.
So, that was the Oklahoma History Center and in my opinion if you are in Oklahoma City this is absolutely a must do. I loved it. I was almost going to skip it but I’m glad we didn’t because it is really a lot of fun.
