location. Visitors will find several different scenarios throughout the museum.
Our "Audio/Visual" room will provide groups with state of the art equipment,
|including a 9' X 15' movie viewing screen. Audio surround sound, with Dolby audio |
equipment, has been designed specifically for this room
|Graffham Hall (Fran's Room)|
Fran has stood proudly in this exhibit since the Children's Museum opened in
|1997. She is a 40 foot long 10 foot high "Acrocanthasaurus" (ACRO-can-THE-|
sar-US (High Spine Lizard) dinosaur. Found in Southeastern Oklahoma and
restored at the Black Hills institute in the Dakotas. The carnivore (meat eating)
display is truly an experience you will enjoy.
|Native Culture Room|
One of the true treasures of the museum is the "Indian Exhibit." Tribes from all
|over North America helped create an authentic and hands-on exhibit of Native |
American cultures. Wearing authentic clothing and grinding corn on 2,000
year-old "matate stones" is truly one of the highlights of the day. These
displays allow you to get a sense of how Native American culture has
influenced us today. To be able to handle "actual" artifacts, beat an authentic
animal skin drum and grind corn the "old fashion way" is truly an enlightening
The exhibits, in this room, provide visitors with extraordinary displays of birds,
|fish, plants and animals that are indigenous to Southern Oklahoma and North |
Texas. You are able to actually pick up and examine, up close, furs, bones,
skeletons, skins and more.
This exhibit remains in the spirit of others within the museum (touchie ... feelie). You
|can actually dig for "real" dinosaur bones, there are several to be found within |
this 6,000 square foot area display. Visitors of all ages will find an abudnance
of real fossils. and you can take them home with you, compliments of the Goddard Children's Musuem.
Walk along a prehistoric stream. Follow the footsteps of prehistoric birds and
|animals as you go back in time to the days of dinosaurs and other animals of |
long ago. Water is the source for life - animals seek out water - streams are a
VERY important social gathering places, for ALL!
