In the early decades of Tulsa’s existence, a robust energy sector powered its economy and prompted construction booms in the famous Art Deco style of the time.

Took my sons here today for a tour of the famous cave house, the boys enjoyed it and I really enjoyed it as well! Linda was extremely nice and made the tour highly entertaining! I never once felt as if she was rushing us along, she took the time to go into detail and answer any questions we had. Adults are $10.00 and children under 15 are $5.00 and it's well worth the money in my opinion. The decor, the quirkiness and the history were well worth the tour! I will absolutely visit again. Thank you Linda!

There was a review posted that was negative. I did not post this review that reflected such a review. I've since changed my password. I have in fact visited and loved it very much. My only issue is that I never caught something that was posted over a year ago and would have corrected it then. This is a wonderful place and great tourist attraction. If you get a chance, check it you will enjoy it!

The place itself is really good, but I didn't see any justification for charging the adults the same price as for kids. Granted, the science and learning room has things an adult can teach his/her kids. But that's only one half of the two rooms. So maybe someone can help me understand the pricing structure for adults at a (primarily) kids place?

Don't believe the pictures! Apparently they removed a lot of the exhibits they used to have, because now this place is a big empty room. When we went we were the only ones there until we left. When getting there, we drove right by it on accident because we thought it was an abandoned building. Once we got inside, it was even worse. The big tower in the middle is gone, the dinosaur is gone, the activity desks are gone, the insect exhibits are gone, the barrels are gone. Basically the only thing that was still there was the tape tubes/slide. Somehow my kids managed to have fun anyway, but we felt really taken advantage of.

My family and I were visiting from KC and before we headed back we stopped by this place to play with our toddler aged boys. Overall not a great experience, let me start with the good though: As weird as it may sound, I actually like the fact there was no background music. I think every parent has musical preferences for their kids so I appreciate them just playing without having to blare pop music or whatever. I also liked the exhibits they *did* have, which were not many. The kids had a good time (even for a short while), so I’ll give them that. Alright so now the bad: 1st, the employees here are just lifeless as heck. I mean we are in a children’s museum, you would think they would hire people who love working with kids and have a sense of joy about them. We walk in and our first impression of the place is the front desk person playing candy crush on their phone and didn’t even acknowledge us for about a minute or so. He was short with us and just had a kind of “I don’t want to be here vibe”. There was also no one in the exhibit areas encouraging the kids or showing them the exhibits, which I’ve seen at almost all other children’s museum. Pretty lifeless in here. 2nd, I wouldn’t call this a museum, but maybe a playroom? This place is hilariously small, literally the smallest children’s museum I’ve been to. By the time 45 minutes hit, the kids had exhausted all of their options to play with stuff. I’m not sure who funds this place, but with Tulsa growing it would be a good idea to invest in a larger more modern facility maybe near the zoo or some other attractions. Honestly, if we didn’t get free admission from our ASTC membership, we would not have even come here based on first impressions. Find some more funding, move to a larger facility and hire people who actually care about kids.

Stopped here on a road trip with two kids. It was a really neat experience. It needs some upkeep, and it would be nice if someone would put up a plaque explaining how it works. But I still highly enjoyed it and the kids had a blast!

A great place to perform pagan sacrifices. Grip the sharp edge of a blade, and draw your own blood. Let it drip. Let it deep into the cracks. Create little moats. Recall the hypnotic chants of the ancient one, and just chill

The Guthrie Green is an awesome little place here in Tulsa. Great family fun. There's always good music, and food people. It's basically Tulsa's hippie gathering place. Bring picnic stuff and your own wine and beer. There's also food and beverage offered on site. Come and relax.

Every Wednesday afternoon during the Summer/Spring/Fall this park is loaded with cyclists. Be it the Tulsa Bicycle Club, or Tulsa Divas, or any number of clubs, groups, soloists, etc. you will see them come in droves for 'Wednesday Night Ride'. The parking lot will literally fill. After the ride people will pull out coolers, portable grills, folding chairs and then hang out and socialize. The facility has restrooms and a water fountain, it connects to riverside trail.

Such an incredible place of history, sadness, peace, hope, and education. This list could go on. Take the time to walk the paths and learn the tragic story of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, walk the Greenwood district and see what has been taken from a vibrant community, and then go out and help build new community. Well worth the time.

I went with my husband, sister, brother, and Neice to play the conquered embassy. We found the game challenging and fun. We missed escaping by 15 minutes as this was the hardest room we still felt good about the challenges we overcame together. I definitely recommend The escape Room of Tulsa.
