Science Museum Oklahoma Accepts $12 Million Grant and Opens Children’s Museum

The Donald W. Reynolds Foundation recently granted $12 million to the Science Museum in Oklahoma City. It will be used for the museum’s capital campaign, which will include a children’s museum in Phase One and interior and exterior improvements of the museum in Phase Two.

According to the Science Museum Oklahoma, Phase One will include a children’s museum that will feature scientists from the past and their contributions to the science community. Each area will feature one or two scientists with themed activities and interactive tours geared toward 3 to 6- year-olds.

Phase Two will be an overhaul of the museum’s main entrance and lobby. The area will be moved to the west end of the museum, so it will be closer to the children’s museum. In addition, there will also be improvements on the museum’s exterior. The remaining $10 million needed for funding the project is still needed, and the overall campaign project is expected to finish by summer of 2015.
