"Science Museum Oklahoma is a fantastic venue to host an event! The Infant Crisis Services Young Professionals Board thoroughly enjoyed working with the Science Museum Oklahoma staff to plan, implement, hand host Bingo for Babies in such a unique space. Our decision to have our event at SMO came down to cost, plenty of space and parking available, and a fun environment in a central location. Science Museum Oklahoma perfectly met all of our criteria and were extremely accommodating. We look forward to hosting future events at Science Museum Oklahoma.”

"My Science Museum Oklahoma experience was excellent from the start. The events staff was knowledgeable, kind and quick to respond. Staff were prompt to schedule a walk-through and confirm our conference room was exactly what we were looking for. I was greeted on time at the main entrance during every visit adding a very personal touch to my experience. If you are looking for a centrally located conference center with a friendly staff and unique backdrop then Science Museum Oklahoma is the place for you!”

"Science Museum Oklahoma was the perfect place to host our leadership training program! The space was fantastic, staff was really easy to work with and my students were able to enjoy the museum after we wrapped up. It was the perfect blend of fun, practical and convenient. My students have already requested to go back next year.”
