Education Programs & Activities
The Oklahoma History Center offers special programs and educational trunks that inspire students to learn more about Oklahoma history. All museum programs directly address Oklahoma PASS skills and correlate with History Center exhibits.
Types of Programs
The museum offers a number of activities for students and groups of all ages. Guided tours, scavenger hunts, and hands-on carts are available depending on the size of your group. Please call and let us design an experience that is appropriate for you. It is very important that your group arrive at their scheduled time. If your group runs late museum staff may change your program without prior notice.
Living History Programs are presented by staff in first person and involve audience participation. All of our living history programs are designed for use by student and adult groups. The presentation will vary by the age of the audience.Your group can schedule a living history during your museum visit or we can schedule a program at your school or for your organization.
Our education trunks are available for use in the classroom by the teacher and include hands-on items, activities, and more. Trunks are available for teacher check out for one week periods at no cost.
Scavenger hunts offer students and families a unique way to explore the museum at their own pace. Our scavenger hunt provides you with the tools necessary to evaluate the student's learning experience. For families they provide themes or guidance for locating artifacts. Please feel free to modify them to fit your specific needs. Make sure you print your scavenger hunt within one week of your visit to ensure you have the newest edition.
