We talked to the education staff at OHOF to find out about their programming available to classes and families.

Explain more about the museum.

Our museum shares Oklahoma’s story through its people. We are dedicated to helping Oklahoma educators and students have meaningful and enjoyable learning experiences as they are learning about the people who have impacted and shaped our state. For kids, we offer several interactive exhibits at the museum that really bring these stories to life!

What field trip options do you offer?
Field trips to our museum are free for all Oklahoma students and teachers and even include fuel stipends. Public and private schools and homeschool groups can register on our website for field trips that meet Oklahoma academic standards for grades K-12 and include follow-up activities. Because of the pandemic, we have implemented procedures to make field trips and all museum experiences as safe as possible, including capacity limits, social distancing requirements, frequent cleaning and mask requirements for all staff and visitors.
What virtual educational options do you provide? 
Free OHOF Adventures virtual field trips engage students and educators with subjects ranging from astronauts, art, and citizenship to engineering and science while meeting Oklahoma Academic Standards. For those looking for a different option, we have a Pioneer Spirit pop-up exhibit that we’ll ship to the school, also for free.
